The point of an alpha is it's up for testing despite having *known and unknown* bugs. It would be absurd to wait for a non-show-stopper bug to be fixed.
Come to that, it seems over-the-top that we are waiting for as much developer sign-off on this *alpha* release as we require for a production-quality release. It's been validated by at least one Unix system and at least one Windows dev; that's enough for me. Just release it and get the wider testing under way!
