You're right, a quick search on google for "path disclosure 
vulnerability" yields a lot of hits for lots of applications.

It troubles me that people consider PDV to be important at all when the 
client-side trojan bug is still fully exploitable on all browsers 
including IE and Mozilla! (AFAIK)  Client-side trojans, which can cause 
your browser to invisibly post a comment on a weblog, execute a 
financial transaction, or break into servers you maintain, are a major risk.

PDV just yields information you might give out anyway.  But maybe we 
could deal with it anyway by writing an "error.log" instead of sending 
the traceback to the browser.  What do you think?
