Not wasting our time at all.

You've basically got two options for bug reporting:

1. Post an issue to this mailing list, (and continue to post when we say
things like "What bugs would you like to see fixed in the next release?"
or remind us of the issue again after we make a release without the fix,

2. Open a bug report and bugs.freedesktop.org. There it's more obvious
how to check back in the future if there has been any progress.

It's really up to you which way you'd prefer to go for bug reporting.

Thanks for the post, and I'm sorry that it turned out to be an old issue
that hasn't been fixed yet. Hopefully someone will find the motivation
to step up and fix this issue soon.
