Actually you probably won't need to cut them any slack, PathScale offer 
excellent support - even when you don't pay them anything.  I was only 
using their 30 day trial license.  I would log a bug, expecting the 
automated response and wait.

Within 24hrs (time different between OZ and the US) I would get a real 
person responding saying something like

	"Yeh, we have identified the problem"
	"here is a work-around/patch"
	"this bug will be fixed in version x.yz"
	"until the bug is fixed, we will extend your trial license"
	"if you have any further bugs/issues please don't hesitate to contact 

This sort of response gives you a nice warm fuzzy feeling and makes you 
want to find more bugs :)
