If bug really causes me a problem, I report it.  But there are tons of
little trifles.  The bug that sparked this thread is a perfect example.
Certainly, Protel would be a better product if these trifles were fixed,
but they are easy to avoid and have little impact on my use of Protel.
Honestly, what are the odds they would be fixed anyhow? 

If Altium wants to eliminate bugs and make their product better, then
they need to put the bug reporting capability directly in the product,
and make it dead simple to use.  They also need to test their software
better in the first place.

Not to jump all over you, but how do you suppose Altium is supposed to
fix bugs if we don't report them?
