I have no opinion about this or more generally about this bug.

I just want to mention that my company, which is a large software company, asked
_everyone_ a few months back to install 7zip and get rid of Winzip from our work
computers. I believe the reason was to save money somehow.

Just thought I'd mention it, in case it's relevant. If this experience is at all
typical or becomes so, then more people could be using 7zip. (I have no idea how
widespread its use is now or might become.)
