It could be an issue for Creative but I even doubt it there due to its present lack of use. Even the Bukkit crew can't reproduce it. Both the Bukkit team and Mojang are trying to sort it out.
Well I want to get 1.7 started as quickly as anyone else, maybe even more because I REALLY want the pistons
But the scary thing with this bug, is that even though it will VERY rarely happen, it still could happen, and if it does it can potentially mess up a lot of things. It would have been one thing if it crashed the game or something like that, but this is essentially a save file corrouption, and that is in my book one of the worst things you can have in a game.
But I don't know, maybe we have facilities to look in an old backup and restore most of the stuff lost if the bug should appear?
