9) Recent Bugs

As I mentioned above, we've added some new content to the Recap.

would be worthwhile to send along the newest issues in the Recap. So,
look for new bugs to be listed and linked in future Recaps. Here's the
first installment:

environment - https://issues.basho.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1265
