And of course this is simply a bug, but I don't care enough to fix it
because I can't recall the last time I wanted to do anything
interesting with that logo, and I have more important things to
do. Somebody who cares about it should chase it up and get it fixed.

I'm not really convinced that the "official logo" has a good excuse
for existing.
