It is demoralizing but you have to argue with MS once they gave one of
their inane responses justifying bugs as "as designed".

Possibly, but of course there is no guarantee it will be fixed even in a
future new release. But I think once you force MS to admit that
something is truly a bug, they will fix it. This is much better than
Borland who, even when they knew a bug existed, simply decided to ignore
both the bug report or any future fix.
