Several people have shown a real misconception about what the Fedora
project is.    To claim that the reason to fix a bug is PR or because we 
will lose more converts from the Windows world completely misses 
the point and is offensive.   The problem will get solved and self 
serving angst over PR isn't useful.

Nobody ever gets flamed for making a helpful contribution to a bug
report.

Cheers,
