I would say "SELECT * FROM ..." is not a bug.
While it wise to consider selecting only a set of fields
if that is all that is needed, there are times when one
wants all the fields in the table. This is particularly true
when building an object/array from data in the database
where on row represents all or part of the object/array.
A good example are node objects where as developers
we expect it to completely represent the node.
