whimboo, of course it's not your fault that no-one has found it, we should have found that bug, regardless in what component it was filed in. But there was a greater change it was found if it was filed in the right component. Often finding a regression window can be very useful. You'll be able to pinpoint which patch caused the bug and you can cc the developer who made the patch.
