Guys, we've made countless fixes and improvements over time, we just haven't been able to get to every single corner case that's been reported, for the simple reason that development time is finite. The feedback is noted and not ignored, but we have to make a choice every week which are the highest priority issues and improvements and which are not. Over time, we improve the game as much as possible and we've addressed many corner cases as well, just not this one unfortunately, as yet.
I accept that there are limited resources to throw at a seemingly infinite list of change requests, bugs and tweaks that come up... but...
But there's no transparency. People post defect reports on the forums and there's no indication from Matrix that the defect has been logged, much less that it will be addressed when it comes up in the queue of the defect list. My issue isn't with the work that has been done. DW has undergone quite impressive changes since its initial release. Rather, it seems a lost opportunity to engage with the player community with small gestures - acknowledging a player's defect report with a simple "defect noted #12345" would go a long way to show that Matrix is indeed listening and that these defects will be addressed when resources and severity warrant.
That said, this is (or seems to me to be) a trivial fix.
