Where bugs go to die

I was surprised today to receive an email about a bug.  In itself this isn’t uncommon, but I didn’t remember the bug very well.

The bug in question is Wireshark bug #1850.  I was using tshark for a work project and lacked the skills to fix it myself.

Why was it a surprise?  I reported it on 2007-09-17 14:01 PDT.  Even allowing for Pacific Daylight Time that’s a rather long time ago.
