Don't worry, a few are broken already :)

This is absolutely perfect!!! Much better than the text file. I assumed it
was easier to use the text file. This is in fact what I have been asking
since December 2011 :)

Thank you for implementing this and for the screenshot :)

I'm sure the marketing and design guys won't be upset since this is for QA
geeks only :)

As long as the final user version doesn't have any of this, that is.  I
assume the idea is that Public Betas and RC builds will not include this
info either?

In fact as I suggested earlier I think the BuildID could be completely
removed from the About box of  public stable releases since there is no
possible confusion between versions (and it is ugly :) ).
