Do you mean like if I do a Jessie base install and then upgrade to ASCII 
and then install my desktop or something else?  Just so you know Trinity 
for Jessie will not install on ASCII/Stretch, I wish it would.

In more than 20 years I've never filed a bug report, but there have been 
Dev's who have shown a interest and have been able to reproduce the 
problems I have found and have filed bug reports, so I don't know if 
there has been a bug report filed or not.
