I dont know whether you are Beating a dead horse.

But the directory bug is important if you are relying on it to give the 
correct answer.
The keyboard problem is relevant if you expect people to be able to 
find anything but a-z on a non US/UK keyboard.
It might be irrelevant for you. To us it it crucial.
And while the errors are impossible to work with for us, we cant use 
2.1.1 ... And although we do primarely work/develop on the Mac, our 
solutions wil primarely be used on Windows. Seen from our very specifc 
perspective it is therefore not a minor detail that "the directory 
etc." is not working on Windows.  And since our "users" should not use 
the Development envirionment, it is not very relevant that it works 
fine in dev-mode.

Best regards
