That's harder than it should be. To get a login to their bug tracker,
you have to email the chair of the group. The chair of the group
appears to be Andrew Josey, but he hides his email so you can't
find it. Anyway, after some web searches I think I found his real
email address, so I'll report it once he creates my account.

Thanks again!
