 LOL - seriously.  That was actually pretty funny!  I like that you think
 my comment had something to do with entitlement issues.  Are you implying
 that people using free software are not entitled to support?

 @datallah - thanks for the response.  I appreciate what you all do as
 developers, and I hope you understood that.  I'm with PidginGuy here, in
 that I tell everyone I know who uses a chat app to use this one.  I guess
 what happened, in my mind, is similar to what my dad used to tell me when
 I was in school...doing a good job is akin to screwing up by proving you
 CAN do it!  You guys have had a pretty solid track record of awesome
 releases.  Naturally crashes take precedence over an annoyance.  Perhaps
 the fact that this annoyance happens to be so visible (to Windows users,
 at least)caused a higher level of response, and the fact that this bump in
 the road comes on the heels of a string of quality updates makes it a
 little extra frustrating for us users.  Whatever, it's all good now, and
 thanks for the explanation of the process; I admit, I honestly overlooked
 the fact that the devs are not the only testers, and for that, I
 apologize.  Keep up the good work!  (btw, in case it is not clear, the
 .dll worked for me too.)
