Good for you. I don't have AV SW as I mentioned. And even so, that still makes it a bug.
Anyhow, a suspicion is speculative. I thought this mailing list was meant to report issues, and I think this is an issue.
How can I further diagnose this? Is there a known way to further determine what's causing this?
