All, this seems seriously NON-lame to me.  Of course, testing and fixing
the bug before it was put out there would have been less so.  But think
of this!  A large company has actually admitted that it was wrong and
backed out a problem!  Isn't this what everyone always complains SHOULD
be done?  ;-)  ;-)  ;-)

Me, I'm always doing it, but that's just 'cause I have to.  ;-)
