Great to see this announced today as having been fixed in update 5 of CF11 (in its "bugs fixed" notes doc.) But I see people talking about this as an issue in CF10 also, and there's no mention of this in the CF10 update 16 "bugs fixed" also released today. Is it that the engineers found the problem to really only be in 11? or just that since this bug report only mentioned 11, that's all that was addressed? It would be a a shame if it is happening in 10 and it was not fixed there as well. See, for instance,, where the OP refers specifically to CF10.

This issue was not lined up for ColdFusion 10 Update 16 release. We will evaluate if this can be taken up in the next ColdFusion 10 Update.

Verified this is fixed in CF11 Update 5 (build 11,0,05,293506). +1 to Charlie's comment. If this affects CF10, it should also be fixed for CF10. Thanks!, -Aaron

Verified this issue does affect CF10. Verified on CF10 Update 15 (build 10,0,15,292620). So this issue should be fixed for CF10. Thanks!, -Aaron

Hey Aaron, you mention today that you have tested this as still being a problem on CF10 update 15. Can you perhaps run your test on u18 (the one released 2 days ago, as you'll know) to see if it's still an issue then? (I don't have a ready test, but it seems you do.) I'd think knowing this would help both Adobe and other readers. Thanks.
