I'd hardly call this "Critical" if there is a workaround for it...

Choosing a critical severity will not help to solve the bug faster. It will only make truly critical problems less visible and probably make the developer assigned to your bug a bit less open to fixing it.

Here is a general usage of severities :

Critical- System crash, severe boot failure that is likely to affect more than just you, or an exploitable security issue in either a core or outward-facing service package.
High- The main functionality of the application does not work, less critical security issues, etc.
Medium- A non-essential functionality does not work, UNIX standards not respected, etc.
Low- An optional functionality (plugin or compilation activated) does not work.
Very Low- Translation or documentation mistake. Something that really does not matter much but should be noticed for a future release.

So this one should be flagged "high" :)
