Yes, they are used far less than ideal. Still, they should be used (and
when I find a bug that is missing a workaround in the description, I add
it in).

But still, we could have a workarounds page in the Wiki (perhaps either
*or*, or *also*, in answers.lp). There we could put the most important
issues, and their workarounds. But not all, I think. There are some very
technical issues that -- if you are hit with it, you most probably also
know where to look for an asnwer.

It is unrealistic to expect all Ubuntu users to browse
