I wouldn't characterize this as such.  Work is being done to understand
the problem, then fix it.  It doesn't appear there is only one problem
(bugs are never singular...), and until they're understood, it's hard to
propose a solution.  It doesn't help that aacraid works well for quite a 
few people, but crashes for several people too.  This makes reproducing it 
in an effort to understand it difficult.  Heisenbugs and all...

So just because no solution has been announced doesn't mean it isn't being
worked on.
