Three is not a problem but the original report is for a lot more - so
something funny is going on and that wants debugging first before
anything gets changed or name/number spaces allocated.

So LANANA firstly wants to know *why* the report is occuring and if the
whole issue is arising due to a bug in something not to a real need.
