Please allow me to clarify.  We are not ignoring this class of
bugs.  We are simply saying that the issue is harder to fix that
people realize.  It's not an issue of making enough noise
for us to realize that there is a problem.  Volker already
acknowledged that.  So rather than treating it as a simple bug
to be fixed, we are trying to deal with the larger set of issues
surrounding it.   Thanks for being patient.

cheers, jerry
