Hi George,

Yeah, we have noticed this few days back when halfdog posted in 
oss-security mailing list 
(http://marc.info/?l=oss-security&m=135057992514783&w=2), but couldn't 
find any official confirmation/reply or CVE mitre page reflecting this. 
So, we have decided to wait and retain both the BIDs for now.
