you workaround bugs you dont fix them

good changes get accepted buggy one are rejected, either fix you code
or fork, broken code will not be accpeted you can call it whatever
you like, call it critical and clean fixes if you like its still not
going to be accepted (noone yet succeded in getting knowningly broken
code accepted)

well,  you dont have to do anything, just if you want a bug fixed or
patch accepted then you will have to follow the same rules as everyone else
now if you had a constructive comment about the rules or suggestions
for their improvement that would be fine too, but you just waste our time
by submitting patches for which you are aware that we cannot accpet them
and if we reject theem you start a lame flamewar, dont you have something better
to do? like adding more broken code to your fork and sit in a corner screaming
"my code is not buggy, everything works better"

PS: ive also applied part of your patch and implemented the other parts
cleanly, which cost less time then this silly disscussion
