Which bugs in particular do you have in mind?

If it's something that's especially bugging you, periodically
complaining loudly on the forums (and linking to the bug in question,
hint, hint) helps draw attention to it.

Given the current scant manpower, it's a bit unrealistic to expect a
timely response, even though nobody will argue that it would be a good
thing.  In this situation, it's even the more important to file issues,
'cos otherwise you can be assured that the bug will unlikely to *ever*
get noticed.
