Yeah, might make sense on some level, even if APRS-IS itself is not 
getting hurt by this bug. Not to say that buggy software shouldn't be 
fixed and fixes be distributed.

Ah yes, it's only the second most popular igate software during this month 
(2014-03) according to my database, second only to UI-View32. This was a 
quick ad-hoc query for software instances acting as igates, and a small 
data set - different statistics could be produced with different rules and 
time ranges. The main point is that there is a good bunch of them out 
there. Luckily, only a few stations out of the whole user base seem to be 
getting the bug triggered.

UI-View32           1569
aprx                 577
jAPRSIgate           519 (D-Star DPRS nodes counted here too, maybe?)
ircDDB Gateway       483 (not an APRS igate - D-Star thing)
APRSIS32             359
WX3in1               218
Xastir               176
APRS4R               102
aprsd                 54
