It's time for two more cents. I've sidestepped (ignored) a lot of the
discussion, but ...

A lot of people (I'm one) are afraid to install updates or new versions.

"Except for the bug, the old version works just fine. Why don't you fix
the bug?"

--"Right. We addressed that issue. It's ok in the new version. Did you
install the new version?"

"No. I don't want the new version. I just want the bug fixed."


Another way to address a bug is to use the vocative case: O Bug!
