Doesn't the wossname go on the second thingy, viz. "coöperation"?

Did you file a bug report about this so that the developers know about it and can fix it?

It's already filed as issue 22696. They haven't touched it for over a year. I don't blame them. Fixing it seems like a lot of work for relatively little benefit.

sneakums, you are right.

But I don't want to encourage them to start working on the fix. It's a lot of work for relatively little benefit. I'd rather they spend their time fixing more serious bugs. I just posted about it because I thought it was funny.
