I don't think that /frequency/ of data loss is a very good reason for
downgrading a data loss bug to a non-RC severity.  Are there other reasons
for downgrading this bug, e.g., doubts as to whether the bug exists in the
current version of the package, or the user must explicitly enable an option
in the setup that's labelled "dangerous"?

Is there any hope of simply *fixing* this bug for the release?
