You're welcome -- glad I could help.

So, to confirm my understanding: if I don't have the time or expertise
to fix a bug I've found, I should refrain from communicating its
existence to its developer community, and hope that a) someone else
finds the bug and b) is capable and inclined to fix it?

I hope I don't sound facetious, but I'm trying to understand if this is
truly the intent. Wouldn't this reduce bug discovery drastically?

I haven't written any C for a while and have never worked with X
libraries; "not that hard" is very relative.
