Default iptables bugs going untended?


I submitted a bug report, 0004193 and did a forum post:
regarding a bug / problem I keep coming up against with CentOS 5.x's
kernel. I've done a load of searching on the subject but can't see any
references on any CentOS list or mantis, so I'm trying to follow up and
see if anyone can work on it, though there are references to it
occurring in other distributions/kernels, though I'm yet to see a
reference to a solution though it logically must exist.

This problem is way beyond my expertise. Unfortunately I've not seen
any response at all with the bug submission, and checking over mantis it
would appear not much is done regarding iptables, there are a number of
bug reports that are sitting in a new state
(http://bugs.centos.org/search.php?project_id=0&search=iptables&sticky_iss ues=off&sortby=last_updated&dir=DESC&hide_status_i d=-2),
having been automatically assigned to kbsingh@karan.org.

Is there any chance someone can help me progress with this bug at all?
I really do want to avoid compiling iptables and ipset and using them on
the servers not out of inability or laziness, but from the patching,
security and server consistency perspective (one of the bonus points of
using distributions like CentOS)

You should be aware that such bugs will not get fixed in CentOS, they have
to get fixed in RHEL. You cannot rely that if you put a bug in the CentOS
bugtracker that is reentered by someone else in the RHEL bugtracker. So,
if you want to have this resolved you should file it on the RHEL bugzilla
as well.
