How do you plan to do that before you know what the bug is?

I didn't say that. What I said was that there is nobody obligated to fix 
any particular bugs in any particular timescale.

That said, if there is a serious bug (which I doubt, as many people are 
editing every day without any problem) then obviously it will probably 
be fixed sooner rather than later.

My suspicion is that you have made a mistake in your request and that 
the only bug is that we're not catching that at the application level 
and hence the database is detecting the problem.

If you do what I asked and file a ticket in trac with the information I 
requested, or even provide that information here, then I might actually 
be able to tell you what the problem is.
