Means "likely never fixed, unless it can be shown to affect more than a 
handful of people _or_ you provide better information".  q.v. the Intel 
graphics bug which had a handful of people screaming that the 9.04 release 
had to be delayed, but affected only a tiny proportion of even the Intel 
users.  And was fixed only a month or so post-release.

what you call "all those regressions"/
