This user is new to BGG (registered X day(s) ago

Missing a close-paren.

(I was unsure whether a typo qualifies as a "bug", but it seemed more like a bug than a "suggestion".)

I'm sure I've seen it reported every so often for years now

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

That tends to happen any time the number of people using a piece of software is sufficiently large compared to the number of people maintaining it.

The time we've spent talking about it isn't more than the time it would take one of us to fix it, because we don't have access. The people who actually could fix it aren't the ones talking (probably because they're busy fixing something else).

As bugs go, this one does seem to be at the far end of the "quick and easy to fix" scale...

Well yeah. I can't imagine how it is anything other than a simple text string in a config file. Literally open, edit, save, refresh.
