What about this bug

I agree with the author. As another example, let's talk about the wireless (wpa_supplicant ?) bug preventing you from connecting to any acces point with hidden SSID.
This one seems to be here from a long time.

Hey, I can't connect at all. Bug reported in Ubuntu 5.x something and confirmed. In 7.10 it still is not fixed. Many people reported and confirmed it for several versions. On some releases just activating the card crashed Ubuntu.

The old reports seems to have "magically disappeared", but a new report confirms that rt2400 cards still does not work out of the box:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.2...

If you read Ubuntu's wiki, you find that cards with rt2400 chipsets are actually recommended. Several years have passed with this recommendation, and with new Ubuntu releases shipping defect drivers for it.

After reporting enough bugs that did not even get a reply, I thought that maybe if I simply did the work myself it would be quicker. Over 3 months after submitting a patch in gnome bugzilla, it still has status "unreviewed" and is not commented. I will of course not bother with writing more patches.
