I thought of it, but for users not used to bugzilla, I was afraid
following the link would be overwhelming, not to mention that the
explanation for the issue is buried in the comments. 

On the other hand, the mailing-list post has info in a compact manner,
mostly suggests to use another browser, and also points to the registry

Maybe I could send a summary/clarification message to the list, that we
could link to? It should have a short explanation, suggested fix, link
to the bug report for, as you mention, news, and also a link to
lachlan's blog for the brave souls.

I can cvs tag the two files and 'cvs update -r tag'. This is how I have
been doing all the releases and all mid-cycle fix so far. The version
number is not an issue, as it is in the "header" SSI that is untouched.
