Yes, it's from Einstein.
What does "Wir müssen wissen. Wir werden wissen" mean?
bugs 388 and 392, someone else was able to reproduce them. We did find
the cause... Adding comments as I write this. Curious?

You need to take into account that IRC can be quite some time-waster
and that therefore some people might not be able to attent that often.

Are you sure this is from Einstein? I know it as:
"Manche Menschen haben einen Gesichtskreis vom Radius Null und nennen
ihn ihren Standpunkt." -- David Hilbert
which would translate into something like:
Some people have got a mental horizon of radius zero and call it
their point of view.
So, Hilbert. not as famous as Einstein amoung non-math people, which
makes quite harder to use :-)
His most famous one is "Wir müssen wissen. Wir werden wissen" which is
on his grave stone:
