The nature of the bug is independent of the issue reporting.
Tested on 2.75
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Open blender
- Save the file (default cube is fine)
- Run "strings" on the resulting .blend file.
- Notice it shows full path to the .blend file and also paths from histories.
The implication of this issue is that this may pose privacy concerns in some cases when .blend file is distributed.
Perhaps, it is not so much of concerns in general usage, but could be an issue if the particular .blend file is output from production machines in a company, which can leak sensitive project names and other information.
Perhaps there is usefulness in retaining histories within the .blend file, however, it might be great to have an setting that inhibits inclusion of private information, as well as an option on the save dialog to strip such information.
