I just registered an account to give a +1 for this. I'm incredibly frustrated at how clearly broken the HDR implementation is and that ZERO mention of it has been made by the developers. I understand they have a large list of improvements and fixes they are trying to make, but it would be really nice to just know if this is on their radar at all.
I couldn't have said it better myself. It would calm me down if I knew that they have the problem on their radar and plan a fix for one of the upcoming patches.
