Default Bug Squashing Challenge! (open for users and devs)

Phex is nearing its first full release for almost 8 months, and I decided to take the chance to start some small game:


Bug Squashing Challenge

Rules of the game:

Everyone who finds a not-yet-known bug, gets one Spot-point.
Everyone who fixes a bug and submits the changes (either as patch or directly in cvs), gets one Squasher-point.

As soon as the release ships all points get added together and the one with the most points makes it into the Bug Squashing Hall of Fame and his or her name will stay there as long as the data lives on.

Hall of Fame
Release 2.2:
- Top Spotter: lokad
- Top Squatter. GregorK

All Bugs count!
(except those already in this thread and those in earlier versions)

We will keep track of the Bug-Spots and Squashes in this thread.
Naturally I am excluded from posting Bugs, but anyone can post Squashes.

A Spot must at the very least include the following information:

- What happened?
- Where did it happen (download-pane, preferences-network, etc)?
- Your Operating System (Windows XP/2000/98/95/...., MacOSX 10.1/10.2.6/10.3.8/..., Linux-version, other)
- Why did it Bug you? (did it cost time or did it destroy a precious download, or did it just look a bit strange? ... )
- How should we call you?

A Squash must include your Alias and an attached patch (or your cvs-Alias, so we can doublecheck).

The following Bugs are already too well known for reporting (so that noone just checks the database and wins even before the challenge starts - Squashing them still gives a point ):

- German localisation not yet complete
- Doesn't work behind my router/NAT (that's a configuration-thing for your router, but UPnP could help here someday)

Here comes the

Bug Squashing List

- Connections over SOCKS didn't work. Squashed by GregorK (in cvs by tonight).
- sizes / visibility of dialogs. Spotted by lokad - Squashed by GregorK

How far do you manage to get up in the Spot-Shqasher Ranking?
I'll update this Liste eveery few days, so you can always check your Score.
Can you get to the Top?

Bug-Squasher Ranking

1. Place: Gregork (0 / 2)
2. Place: lokad (1 / 0)

Now it's your time! Fire up Phex and sharpen your glasses, or get that good old Squasher of yours from the code-cabinet and go squashing!
