You should use the bug reporting form on our website to report bugs. If 
a bug is reported here, it most of the time is either fixed immediately 
(if someone immediately knows what's wrong and has time to fix it when 
he reads the mail), or not at all.

We try our best not to do that, but accidents happen. When fixing one 
bug, there's always a risk that you introduce another bug. We did not 
add any features to 1.0.8/1.0.10 to minimize this risk.

> I'm attaching two sources with comments that demonstrate the bugs.

Please submit a bug report, so that it will be fixed in 1.1. Thanks.
