Hm, why not publicly? Security through obscurity is a discredited philosophy.

its bugs. just bugs. no security even involed here, its just an icon library!

Authers dont have time to trawl through every single Amiga web site/ maillist
or newsgroup to pick up individual moans or compliants about their code.
i know. been there, done that.

whats so hard with emailing the author?? even a one-liner saying
what the problem is, and/or how you saw/caused the problem???
