Can you please confirm that the question I put in my draft questions
for SFLC, on this subject, addresses this point ?  If I haven't
fully captured your understanding of the problem then my draft needs
to be updated.

(I'm about to post a v3 but it's essentially identical on this point.)

I think you're being rather rude here.  It's not the case that people
are deliberately `hiding' these `bugs'.  Rather, they disagree whether
the problem is real or imaginary.
