Seriously, we all need to stop being so defensive and get to work on fixing 
the bug. It seems to me like mistakes/misunderstandings may have been made on 
all sides. Myself included.

All I have done is raise an issue that I felt was not known by the LA 
Committee and mirror team.

I won't delve into that one, but I will say that we have been trying for quite 
some time to get this issue resolved.
