I think adding a "corruptProfile" tag in the whiteboard would be good.
but I'd leave the WFM status instead of NEW

as far as I know most of those profile corruption are unpredictable and 
never reproducible from scratch... and I've never seen a user with a 
corruptProfile WFM bug telling that it happened again after resetting

moreover there's no automated tool yet to analyze profile folders (I'm 
thinking about a bibisect-like thing) so I think that developers should 
concentrate on reproducible bugs that affects multiple users rather than 
focus on random bugs that affected one user only once in a time
