Hey Dan,

      There are now three bug reports on this particular problem: 81976,

First a big thank you for taking the time to help out with reporting and
what not.

So for confirmation - what we like is for someone experienced in QA or
developer side to confirm because then we can tell 100% that the bug report
is "good" in the sense that it's easily reproducible with the provided
steps/attachments/etc... Because our team is so overloaded with work we
really want to ensure that our time is used wisely (which means clear
reports that we can quickly go through and see the issue).

As far as ETA - we don't give these ever, our project is filled with
volunteers working for free and they tackle bugs when they want (ie. we
don't push bugs to developers). This being said, there are additional steps
you can take to help a developer easily fix the issues.

Are you running Linux? If so, if I could help you do a bibisect (which
takes some time but is TREMENDOUSLY helpful) I am willing to take the time
to do this. After it's done and assuming it goes well, I'll poke the
appropriate people to attempt to get it fixed quickly - if this sounds
reasonable let me know and we'll start the process. Again, no promises as
to ETA but if you help us help you, things might move quite a bit faster :)
