I never said nor implied any such thing.  I simply pointed out that until 
you can provide test data that reproduces the problem, it is unlikely this 
bug will be fixed.  Not for lack of willingness for it to be fixed, but 
because *you* are the only person seeing it, and *you* are the only person 
with a data set that causes the issue.  Thus it is up to *you* to provide 
such data to the project, or describe it in such a way that someone in the 
project can reproduce it.

Again, this is why I keep an NDA with Symas.  It allows me to provide them 
data necessary for such reproductions.  I've managed to hit all sorts of 
odd ball edge cases over the years that no one else could produce.  What I 
didn't do is expect the project to be able to figure out with a bare 
minimum of detail what was going wrong.
