In spite of the "wasting time" comment, I don't think anyone is trying 
to say that this bug doesn't matter.  It's been noted that the effort in 
fixing it is substantial (due to the involvement of legal), and it's a 
fact that there is a trivial workaround (clicking ok a few times when 
you flash the device).  There are other bugs that that do not have 
trivial workarounds, some of them have been waiting for fixes much 
longer than this report.  In a world with limited resources, not 
everything can get fixed "right now".

It's also worth noting that someone (marius?) offered to accept a patch 
to disable the dialog in red-pill mode.  If the bug is very important to 
you or anyone else, they can create a fix or organize a 
bounty/sponsorship to encourage someone else to create one.
