The problem with wishlist bugs is that, even if you send an e-mail with an
obviously correct fix (or a harmless fix, for that matter, like changing
the colors of a desktop to be more consistent), it can go on ignored.
And ignored. And ignored (for way more than six months). Not even a
response telling that it won't be done and the "wontfix" tag. Simply an
open and ignored bugreport. This is not good, IMHO, and, of course,
frustrates the users.
