The problem here is that the bug did not have the proper visibility for
quite a long time - this is one of those that should have been added to
the Most Annoying Bugs as soon as it showed up it is a broader problem.
Without that, we did not have the opportunity to spot it / give it the
right priority.

I am afraid that the use & rules for the Most Annoying Bugs is not
enough widespread yet, so please let me summarize it:

- To get the proper attention to the real blockers, they _must_ appear
  in the Most Annoying Bugs

- The Most Annoying Bugs are meant for really serious bugs only, and not
  for "my favorite red button should be blue"; such bugs will be removed
  from there

If they do not appear there, there is a big probability they'll be
overlooked, even if mentioned on all the mailing lists many times.

BTW, the nightly build from yesterday evening has the issue fixed:
