Well, maybe - they're fine with people reporting things that
they've thoroughly investigated themselves, but kinda snarky with people who
just report symptoms.

 FWIW, I'm running pre-0.25 and I don't see either of these issues (using

Seems to have settled down in the last few days - I got a string of useless
builds last week, but a version pulled yesterday seems fine.
