If you need yet another perspective, your tone does seem abrasive. This is not the place for regretting how Apple handles bug reports.

This sounds like a crappy support team by a large multinational company that open sources non-functional Linux ports of its language.  I gave clear examples and bugs so I don't understand why you are getting defensive and hammering me with the "unprofessional" word.  First, address the issues and the bugs; I gave you clear examples and you circumvent those issues and flag the post because you don't want to confront that the tooling is buggy and flaky.
