I apologize, in advance, for posting this to the EAP forum but I don't know how else to
get an update on this particular defect.
Defect 20471 was submitted about two months ago and is still in the 'To be discussed' state.
Are there any plans to do anything about this particular problem soon? As I tried to make clear in the bug report and associated postings, this is a serious problem for me and, judging from the submissions, for others also.
