Its just the name you object to I think. There already is such a "tax"in the form of transaction fees. Now they benefit miners, I dont see why we could not redirect part of it to a bitcoin foundation.

The difference between "bitcoin foundation" and "miners" is (lack of) decentralization, one of bitcoins main selling points.
I was going to say that, but you also don't have to use this client, so the fee is still decentralized in that respect. Having a fee to the client developer also make the centralized-client issue more visible to the end users, which may be a good thing to get it solved sooner. It also gives clients an incentive to be competitive.

Gavin, thanks for all your hard work. I am sure you know this, but there are many people, hidden away in the background, that are impressed with your efforts. You have a sound strategic vision and have done important work in this crucial early stage. As an experienced professional, you already know that these bugs do happen in complex software. For us less-experienced people, please keep letting us know how to test the code or otherwise contribute.

Thanks again.

Do you want to complain on the forum just to fall for another scam a few days later?

How about a more generalized donation percentage kind of thing? Give people a choice of a few bundled donation targets and prompt them to choose on the first run. Also extensible so it's possible to click a link on a website and have a new one added to the list.

Test please: http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.4.1/test/

Obviously, be sure you have a wallet backup or two.

Has this bug been fixed in 0.5.1 which I downloaded today after 6 months not using bitcoin and which I used today for encrypting my old wallet (5 minutes *before* I read about this bug)?

I think so, but until someone can confirm for certain, you're safe so long as you protect your wallet.dat - ie, don't upload it to the public.
