I don't see the need for a quick / 2.0.6 in this case - the issue
is minor and only affects a limited user base - Mark's plugin provides the
fix for you _if_you need it.

Don't forget 2.0.5 contained security updates.

nightmare the one time long ago the download zip file was updated as bugs

Reporting by email only really works on small projects - trac is where we
as a community collect, triage and fix issues - if you really want to
report by email then wp-testers is the place to go - people on that list
will take you issue suggest a fix (and create the trac ticket for you if
your lucky)
