Dunno if you are speaking only of a _particular_ fix proposal or generally.

Obviously, speaking generally, this needs to be fixed before the 23.2 release,
since it is a _regression_. The problem never manifested itself previously
(Emacs 20 through 23.1 release), even if, as some have suggested, 23.1 perhaps
dodged a bullet.

AFAIK, the default location on Windows for files such as .emacs-history (for
savehist.el) is C:/ (or perhaps $HOME, defaulting to C:/). 

Other Windows users _will_ hit this bug. Some solution needs to be found now,
