No need to apologize! I really appreciate hearing of problems -- the  
sooner the better, of course, but some things are obscure enough that  
they can go un-noticed for quite a while. None of us have the  
resources to test everything exhaustively, I fear.

It is, of course, far preferable to hear of bugs *before* the TL  
release rather than immediately *after* the DVDs have been burned!

It's great to hear how people are making use of the tools we're  
building -- makes it all worthwhile! :)
