Debug code shipped with 8.5.2 gold?

Looks like there is one more issue with the new 8.5.2 release of Lotus Traveler and Update Installer that is going to bug me.
After installing the 8.5.2 Update Installer on my Nokia N97 mobile device there is a little pop-up coming up in the top right corner of the screen whenever I am using the function key on the keyboard (see screen shot below). Removing and reinstalling the app confirmed that it is definitely being the cause.

Now I am obviously wondering whether IBM has missed to remove/disable debug information before shipping the code to the customer. This suspicion is boosted by the notices.txt file in the LotusTraveler directory on my mobile phone claiming to contain ‘NOTICES AND INFORMATION’ for ‘IBM Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.2 – Beta’.

As with the previous issues I have submitted this problem to IBM for further investigation. It would be nice to know though if anyone else is having similar issues.

Traveler Pop-up

Update 02/09/10 – response from IBM:

Sorry for the inconvenience – it is a debug switch – shouldn’t hurt
anything.  It has been fixed in the next release of 852 which we be
available around 9/17.

Please download the newer version after 9/17 and install.  With the
Lotus Installer application on the device, the users should be prompted
to automatically update their clients.
