For some (but only for some!) of these “new” UNCONFIRMED bugs from 2011, 
I am responsible. I have already explained this. A few days ago, I wrote 
to the QA list:

Let me add that I referred here not to bugs which had already faced some 
discussion, but only to “virgin” bug reports who had never received any 
attention by bug wranglers or developers, and which therefore just slept 
in the database, hidden by the warm blanket of status NEW (and probably, 
given the huge number of bugs, would have slept there forever!).

Setting their status back to UNCONFIRMED has the advantage that sooner 
or later some bug wrangler will stumble over these reports and do what 
is necessary to do, and then (if they are still reproducible and 
important) will CC the developer(s) about them.

Of course, I will try to re-visit and test these bugs myself, I just 
can’t do everything at once ;-)

Best regards,
