For us non-informed, commercial developers, would you care to 
define "buglet"?  Is it bigger than a bug, but smaller than a bugger?

Also, can you elaborate on the fix a bit, so I can find the fix and apply it
to my "sandbox"?  I'm not sure I want all of Chris' recent updates for the 
trailing dots until he releases the revised sources to fix the problem in 
it's entirety, but I am interested in seeing this issue taken care of.
