Ok, I'm going to pick on you a bit Hans.  Forgive me.

There is this magical tool called bugzilla.  It's used to track issues
people consider to be bugs.  It sucks at times, but it's what we have.

If you really thought this was a bug, I would have been a hell of a lot
more receptive to fixing things if it was filed via bugzilla than I
would if I hear about it on a mailing list rant.
