PolarBlog Comment Delete Bug

I've just found that a bug fix I made in V1.5.2 (Groundhog)…

"Deleting a single comment destroying all root level comments!  A serious array data mishandling issue in the DB class has been corrected.  Nested arrays are now handled properly."

Has NOT been fixed and appears to still exist!  I know this because I've once again trashed my comments table! :(  So until I can extract it from the backup (probably tomorrow), my comments on most entries will be missing.

Consider this your warning not to delete comments until I get this fixed.  An easy work-around is to edit the offending comment and disable the display option.  Generally this is what I do even with spam comments, but was fixing another comment problem and stumbled upon this while deleting a duplicate comment I created.

I don't have an ETA for fixing this, but I will likely issue a new release to address just this problem once I do fix it.  Sorry.  I hope this hasn't/doesn't hit you too!
