Don't you think it's a bit reckless closing bugs and brushing them aside like this, as if people reporting them are mere idiots. This is a really serious bug, and only two days ago I managed to waste a complete 48 hours because of the 100% CPU usage and unresponsiveness of the system.

You say to obtain a back trace; how on earth are you supposed to do that when the system is simply frozen and the bug affecting not a single package, but every single package that one can use to copy files across - take your pick, do a large copy of either a large contiguous file or a large number of files, and bingo you have it.

One would have thought a team with brains the size of a planet would surely have seen this, rather than hide behind political crap that distinguished Micro$oft and it's pile of Windoze trash. So how about you get off of your hight horse, move those fat a***s, acknowledge the bug and give a more meaningful answer to everyone's complaints? Bah Humbug !!
