That is awaiting any proof. Just now i have seen resistance to either reading 
what was written or understanding it.

One last time, it IS a bug and should be nailed down and reported. See the 
other dozen mails about it.

Obviously you are quite correct. And i am sorry for any dev that needs to deal 
with users who resist any suggestion or hint...

Honestly, you jumped on a thread stating the obvious (it is a bug), skipping 
answers and yet replying with FUD("As I understand, it is not; non-
compatibility with previous major release is not considered bug").
Hardly the way to go.
