Greetingz and Welcome to LQ!

I would suggest you familiarize yourself with how to use LQ, which will help you in asking questions. There's a section on "how to post" (I know that sounds really, really low-brow, but hey, even I learned a lot from it).

Note: To anyone who reads this, these are my personal notes on a problem I suspect I have found. I am not done with my research into it, so I am not officially reporting the issue till I understand it. Right now, these are just my personal notes.

Test Requirements:
