Hi Martin, I'm sure tha WRI has a excelent bug database. It will be a horror for any marketing department if the company with "The world's only fully integrated technical computing system." offer a public bug data base that show that the fully integrated technical computing system is not so perfect as the marketing department says. A link to the bug listing page should be placed on every www-page with marketing material. The other systems like MakSyma, Meple, ... will love the Mathematica bug data base. I'm sure that all the home pages of this systems will make a link to this bug page. We all love Mathematica and we hate the bugs, but a public bug listing should also be a listing of the bugs in other computer algebra systems ! So your the question should be extended to a general bug data base of CA systems and you should post your question to the sci.math.symbolic news group to collect bugs of the other CASs.
