That could be true, but is subjective. In a similar way my impression of a 
program with typos in its strings is that it may be sloppily made. Still I 
don't think such a situation is a critical bug.

I propose to put this bug at severity "important" which for me strikes the 
right balance between being 'very desirable to fix' and not being 'an actual, 
critical security hole'. OK?

Obviously fixing it is the real solution.


cheers,
