This is excellent advice for everyone ...
So many times, I have started working on a message to a mailing list
or bug tracker trying to explain exactly what I am doing and what is
going wrong when ! oh... I see what the problem is now!
It is one reason I prefer mailing lists to irc. It forces us to think about
things a bit more for ourselves, rather than just getting the answer.
Thanks for sending this in even though you figured it out. I am sure it
will light a bulb for someone else, and maybe encourage someone to
write a good question even if they can't find the answer on their own.
