It would be most helpful if all bug reports sent here listed the version
number, and the size/date of the file in use, as well as the platofrm
(which was listed in this example).

The main reason is that with the v2.001 client, lots of them crashed! But
we have lots of people here saying "This is broken, it crashed".

I'm not involved with the programming effort here, but let's make our bug
reports more usefule for those who ARE programming the clients!
