Right. And I'm not even convinced that we really know the extent of the bug; it seems fairly plausible that there's further incidences of this. There's also the issue that the mechanics in the older backbranches are different again, because of SnapshotNow. >> I'm bit a surprised with this position. What do we tell our users now that >> we know this bug exists? That we're scheduling a bugfix for the next point release. I don't think we can truthfully claim that there's no known corruption bugs in any of the release in the last few years.
