Well, as Colin pointed out CK is not really GNOME specific. It is used
on virtually all modern distros, and unrelated to any specific desktop

So, as you write above X and the kernel and KDE are imperfect und
incomplete too. So pointing fingers at CK is a not really fair, is it?
Manpower is limited. And most devs involved aren't lazy, so what is
there to complain about? YOu yourself admit that you are busy on
tracking down bugs, so you don't find time to track down this one in
CK. Maybe the devs of CK have more on their plate then writing docs for
CK, and priorized things so that CK docs are not first priority? Maybe
they are fixing bugs in X or the kernel too, as we speak?
