Please leave it assigned to [email protected], as it may not 
show up in searches or e-mail us updates if it isn't.

Leave it marked as new.  Some of us core developers will set it to 
assigned if we're actively working on it and going to be done within a 
few days.  Others just leave it as new until it's fixed.
