It's quite simple, provide a test case and someone will start looking
into the problem (given there is one). The information you provided so far
is quite vague, it would be pure luck to spot the bug. You have do
understand that looking into such a bug may cost dozens of hours or days if
it can't be reproduced by the person. Nobody does this without at least very
strong evidences that the bug actually exists and your appereance so
far didn't help too much I guess.
