Surely you've reported a bug (in whatever) before, Allan, only to get
told, "That's the way it's supposed to work." I think that stating that
something's a bug is done to short-circuit that sort of response. It's
done to tell the developer "This behavior is *wrong*, even if it is per
design". I'm not saying that calling it a bug works, necessarily, just
that that's the rationale...
It doesn't sound right to simply report a behavior. "When I do this,
that happens." Um, yeah, and...? Is that a complaint or a compliment?
At least adding "I think this is a bug." lets the reader know it's a
complaint. In Adam's case it was probably redundant, since he cited
chapter and verse about what the correct behavior should be. Still,
better to err on the side of clarity.
