Fair enough I stand corrected but it's been there since 1.something, so either way it's not new. I shall be more careful to read responses in future :). To categorically state what I mentioned in the original advisory, "I do not make any claim to having discovered the directory traversal first, I simply want the bug fixed".

So it seems, and there lies the problem, the UK forum at least does not function in either Firefox or Konqueror. I like vendors who respond by email and I like vendors who respond[1] quickly even more :).
