Yes, I've had this experience, too. I think a bug report to SourceForge
(which I've just submitted) should be able to address the problem,
eventually. Not sure how long it will take, though.

N.B. I believe your email address is still used by the system to notify you
when the item is changed in the tracker.

I think the submission may get interpreted as HTML :-(
If I'm wrong, I suggest submitting a SourceForge bug. Heck, even if I'm
right, it seems like a bug.

Thank heaven for small miracles!
