Note that as our "Bugs and Issues" page  explains, we expect reports to be
submitted in the issue tracker only after they have been discussed and
confirmed as such on our dev mailing list . This is really important to us
and we've tried to make it clear throughout the site. You may also like to
check the following page  for the rationale behind our decision.
For all these reason we may be marking this issue as Invalid. In all cases,
please report it on dev@... so that we can have a proper discussion.
P.S. On a side note, we would be interested to know how you reached the issue
tracker without seeing any of the notes where we ask users not to submit
issues without discussing them with the developers first.
