As far as I am aware, ALL software has bugs. Bugs aren't closed on age, but on 
priority, availability of someone who understands the code to fix, how 
difficult it is to fix, and whether the fix will have side-effects. In fact, 
some old bugs should not be fixed, because the fix could have a worse outcome 
than the workarounds already deployed.

And lest someone accuse me of spending time writing emails when I could be 
working on bugs, I was working on bugs. I closed two yesterday in-between 
writing emails on this thread.
