I am going to defend cryptic... hell is a little chilly tonight.
If ANY developer was too wait until every little bug was squashed before working on new features we would still be using MS DOS 6.0... or perhaps Commondores...
Wouldn't even be using these yet, most likely. DOS 5.0 had bugs that were still around in the vestigial nub of DOS included in Windows XP and were only killed by taking away the prompt's ability to act as a shell. And Commodores... well, that's the poster child of "feature, not a bug." Emulators have to emulate certain bugs to get some programs working.
