I think this is a case of software not being used as defined by the specs. They say

The game is not designed to be kept minimized for such a long period of time.

Which to means that they have some definition somewhere of what counts as a "long period of time". If you minimize the program for more than a "long period of time", it goes beyond their specifications and beyond what they tested for (assuming they formally tesed this) and they do not guarantee what will happen. Of course, it would have been nice if the manual somewhere said "we have only tested this program to be minimized for periods of time not exceeding 10 minutes. Minimize for longer than this at your own risk!".

So no, I don't think this is really a bug. In my office, this would be called a "user training issue" (which I'd say is a form of a communication problem, because in this case because no maximum period for minimize-time was communicated to the user) since the user is not using the program properly. Not that it helps much for Blizzard, unless they put it in the manual...
