Wait wait wait, i'm SORRY for the terrible MISUNDERSTANDING here - well 
i'd rather call it MISEXPLAINING to place the blame on the right place, 
which is on me.

The reason why I didn't tell the name wasn't ABSOLUTELY that. That 
possibility didn't even come up to my mind, and no, I don't consider 
bugs a shameful thing, not only that much but not even a bit.
Also, the part of not telling the name was a kind of a joke since I 
_thought_ it was clear I was talking about Miller. I didn't "want to" 
tell the name (facetiously) in order to avoid "setting a precedent" so 
that every user would start sending Miller crashing patches and expect 
bug fixes for the next day.
When Miller wrote me (publicly in this m/l) to send him a crashing patch 
(in reply to a message of mine about some bug), he started the message 
with "It's a dangerous thing to offer, but...".
