I beg your pardon, gentlemen. Would you be so kind to decide first between 
yourself whether this is a bug or not? According to Ryan it's not a bug, 
according to your comment above, Bill, it is.

Or may be there is a need for a new tag @platform or similar which will have 
platform specific nuances, which aren't planned to be fixed and therefore 
don't fall into the category of a bug?

Besides, I didn't have XXX in the proposed doc section.
