Yes, it seems to be this one:

Unfortunately I must say it's highly unlikely this will be fixed in 1.0. Yes, 
the issue has been open for long, and I would also very much like to see it 
fixed.

The reason is that we(the test suite task force) have problem getting in 
contact with all our members. Vacations pokes holes in work flow this time of 
year.

Hopefully, it will be fixed in a bug fix release that has been suggested to 
follow the 1.0 release.

You are of course very welcome to use this list. Many find using the bug 
database practical. Let us know if there's any trouble you have so we can 
help, if you like. But again, you're welcome to use this list.
