In the future, if any of you come across something this major in the future and are uncomfortable discussing it openly on the forums, please feel free to PM myself, PWEBranflakes or ArchonCryptic directly. These sorts of bugs need thorough documentation and explanation before we can track down the root causes, and just making a post that says nothing other than "Voldemort is back!" is approximately 0% helpful. Especially since multiple different bugs have been given that nickname, now.
So when people reported this on tribble, they must not have told you the exact way to reproduce it. That explains why you released it to live anyway.
