great to see you’re still around - has my other private message reached you? I had forwarded your case to my SuSE back-end contact and development is willing to look into this. Opening the SR will ensure that everything is “channeled” correctly.
Happy holidays to you, and I wish you a splendid switch-over to 2014!
PS: Due to the holiday season, formal response to the SR may be a bit laggy - personally, I’d give them time until first week of 2014
