If it is in bug tracker, it will be fixed at some point in future, may 
be. I cannot promise anything because there are much more important 
things to do in tv.

No comment... I can invest time only to reproducable bugs from bug tracker.

As usual: put bug report to bug tracker... It is always the same 
procedure: you found a bug, report it and wait for fix...

May be you have bad employees... I work with many people who often think 
that "computer" is the thing where they look to (monitor). They have no 
idea how they connect to the Internet and they are stunned by the 
question "what browser do you have?" or "what Windows do you have?" 
(they say "plastic"!!!). But I never had any trouble teaching them 
typo3. They work with typo3 for years now and even help each other from 
time to time.
