Yeah, that's an analogous situation.  Good comparison.

I asked for more info (namely, does it still repro with current cvs), and you 
said you wouldn't do that.  Why should I waste time asking you to provide any 
any more information, after you've already refused once?

I expect people that are using cvs to be able to update to a more recent 
checkout before re-reporting a problem.  If you're not capable of doing that, 
stick to the releases - you really shouldn't be using CVS.

You don't feel entitled to immediate support?  Let's review when you sent

You don't think that that's excessive?  Do you see anyone else acting like 
this on either list?

I take this attitude with users who annoy me.  You annoyed me.

I you think I've been insulting you, you really ought to get out more.

And, yes, acting like you're entitled to immediate support and sending 8 
identical messages to a mailing list is a _great_ way to get help.
