Slated, thank you for your comment.  You've just said what linux users
say when they are confronted with bugs in their precious distro.  That
instead of fixing them, they write them off and tell the user to just
not use it.

It's one extreme to another.  From this is the year of the linux
desktop, to if you don't like it go use something else because it's free
and if you got it for free you got no right to complain about it.

I know it's a defense mechanism because that kind of response can only
come from someone whose just had their reality shattered by a reasonable
argument.  When your entire belief system is suddenly shown be false or
part of it is shown to be false, you can either accept it or rationalize
it further so that it can again fit in your belief system.  That's why
some people's reasons here for not wanting this fixed are so
predictable.  You only can rationalize something so far.

I'm not sure why the Ubuntu programmers have left this bug open for the
community.  With the amount of people wanting it fixed, I don't know why
they won't commit to fixing this properly.  Maybe they are with wayland.
I'd hope so.
