No subject line is a feature - because we got many messages where people
didn't bother to alter the predefined subject line (why should they,
anyway), which makes it impossible to see at a glance what a message is
about (and consequently makes it tedious to find a message again later).
Therefore, the subject line was removed (if people still don't enter a
meaningful subject, the situation is the same, but if they do, it is
greatly improved).

But email and OS information should still be present, so that is a bug.
In fact, we even added some instructions what to specify and how to do
it (e.g., to add a subject line ;)).

There was a minor problem in the code that apparently was handled
gracefully on my Linux machine. That was corrected in r944 - could you
please test if this solved the issue on Windows?
