There isn't anything anything IMO anything very wrong about the bug, but
I agree that it just isn't going to happen, unless someone happens to
really take a sudden interest in it.

In fedora we close still-open bugs reported against fedora versions
three (or so) releases earlier than the current release with a "if this
still matters to you then test in the current version and reopen it if
the problem persists". It's hardly an ideal solution, but it does avoid
the accumulation of infinite amounts of bugs.

Maybe this is the way to go: cull all bugs reported against versions >=
3 older than the current release that haven't had any activity in X
months with a polite request to retest that its still broken if it still
matters with a few links to commercial support if there's an itch they
really want scratched.
