RE Bug Stickies: I can understand where your request is coming from, but I don't think all issues should be stuck.
for example, it took me 30 minutes today to come up with the scenario that created the code you mentioned. In my experience, when a sticky is put up, every one assumes that the issue applies to them, I have seen this cause more harm than good in some cases.
There have been many instances where I have put up a sticky for an issue, and people have implemented the fix when it was not needed and ended breaking something else.
Instead of concentrating on posting sticky's for all known issues, we are trying to concentrate on releasing updates to correct them
