I don't recommend anything except that I do recommend that if you have a
problem and someone says "Fixed in the latest snapshot" you can 1) try
the snapshot or 2) not try the snapshot, but don't keep describing a bug
that may be fixed in the snapshot.

In other words if I say "I fixed it, go here to try it".  The correct
response from you is not "It is not fixed" unless you've actually tried
what I told you to try.
