The only place I found in bugs that presents the sdesc field unescaped is on line 87 of report.php, where $row['sdesc'] should be htmlspecialchars($row['sdesc']).

This section of code gets presented to the submittor once they initially submit a bug report and bugs are found that appear similar to the one they're trying to submit.

Is this where you saw the problem?

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the
end of next Sunday (CET) on

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the website in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PEAR better.
