I don't really understand your description of this bug, but it doesn't
sound like something that gets fixed in a stable release *at all*. You
might want to review Debian's update policy for stable releases.

Debian depends on bugs to be reported *before* the initial release. That
means it needs people running testing/unstable and reporting bugs.
