The other report we had was something that was not easily publicly 
available (we were given something that looked like a reduced example). 
  So I can't really help you there.

Given that the bug was only present for a day or so, two separate bug 
reports on pages with large tables being sorted indicates that they have 
to be somewhat common.  Unless you think that there were just the two of 
them and people happened to stumble on them, out of all the pages out 
there, in that one day?

If one can spider for such things easily, one could look for pages 
including jquery.tablesorter.min.js, of course, and see what they look like.

But I'm not really sure what the question is here.  I'm not claiming 
that a large percentage of the web has large tables being sorted.  Just 
that at least two people who happened to be using the latest Firefox 
nightly ran into such pages without 24 hours and actually reported a bug 
based on that...
