Then look for it and submit a patch.

It is unsupported.  If you or others are having this problem and want it to
work, then you'll have to troubleshoot it yourself.  It works fine here and
I doubt any of the other core developers are experiencing (or maybe even
trying) this because none of them spoke up when I closed the original ticket.
I also don't recall seeing these "plenty of other users" posting questions
about this on either the -users or -dev mailing lists.

Yeah, that's going to get me to debug this issue for you, sure...
I think the way it usually goes is the developers first fix the bugs that
bug them, then they fix bugs that users help debug, then if they're feeling
considerate they debug other problems that no one wants to help with other
than just saying "feature X is broken."
