I was under the impression from the threads I was reading it was a well documented issue and that it was not particularly helpful to simply say "me too".
Nevertheless, it was negligent of you not to jump through all the required hoops to register your bug report. Just because a hundred people before you had already reported it does *not* mean that the devs would necessarily have noted the problem then, or admit to it existing now. Your data loss was your fault. Because you did not bother to file a bug.
FS developers toil day and night, and the only payment they get is fame, glory, and money. Any data loss is the fault of the user.
