And in addition to what Andrej said, I see no point in addressing bugs
that would be specific to XP, and unsupported version of Windows.

Not that we're really (actively) supporting Windows and not even
following the support program of this OS, but if it's clear that if a
reported bug implies XP and is not present on 7+, it will hardly get a
chance to see our efforts deployed to fix it, unless the fix is
trivial. Doesn't make real sense to me :-).
