don’t forget about the ‘trick’ to google the error:
http://tinyurl.com/37sjrk2

which in this case turns up lots of evidence of bugs…

there is even previous notes on it in opensuse.org, here:
http://tinyurl.com/2uone58

someone probably needs to enter a bug in our bugzilla, and it will go
forward i guess: http://wiki.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports
