Ah, no problem. As per my other e-mails, I can find these now.

If possible, can we change the default settings, especially for
anonymous viewing of the bug DB i.e. not logged into SF.net, to show
"all" bugs, rather than just "open" and "pending". IMHO this is less
confusing, partly as it is the same as the older tracker behaviour.

I suspected this might be the case. Hopefully this will get fixed in
time and we can remove the underscores.

Ah thanks. No problem there then.
