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.
jAPRSIgate 519 (D-Star DPRS nodes counted here too, maybe?)
ircDDB Gateway 483 (not an APRS igate - D-Star thing)
WX3in1 Mini 44
