i had to listen the 2 and 3 podcasts offline while resting off diving on 
open waters (no pun) so this might be kind of retarded reply anyway :/

i have a feeling--a strong one if i may--that the OP bug is on my

happily, i'm still on vacation/holydays now and still, that doesn't make 
to justify an incomplete bug report and followup process. ah, always the 
process, when evidences are due late or never coming... yes, Louigi it's

right on. LV has been one of those "soft-core" testers ever still, maybe 
anymore? lap003 tells me otherwise, but hey Louigi, software development 
is no simple craftsmanship, complex software is serious business and old 
and new assumptions are always caught in the open

i have this kinda metaphor for that old returning bug case: short 
blanket syndrome. yep, an anti-pattern of its own--simply put: you may 
fix or close one but will most certainly open one another often hidden 
and even dead older--the most hideous bugs just lurk in there, believe 
me, i know ;)
