bin/15142 filed against NetBSD 1.5.2 has just cost me a few hours of 
work with a 1.6 java build server hitting seemingly random limits.

Puzzles me why a bug labeled 'severity high / priority critical' can 
stick in the database for fifteen months and not even get a comment 
or status update that would indicate somebody has actually looked at 
it (much less applied the patch).

While there is no voting mechanism for NetBSD bugs, I would very much 
like to see a fix for this problem.

For now I shall apply the patch, leaving one more maintenance 
headache for my successor.
