A pointer to it?

"[T]he resistance has been too strong" is loaded language. Nobody
would argue against a correct, clean fix for a known bug. So, either
the bug is not acknowledged as such by everybody involved, or the
patch was not deemed correct, or clean. (For any other possibilities
I'm leaving out, please explain.)

This seems like you were saying that you can't bother to get the patch
into the repository, but you don't mind if others pick the pieces. Not
very encouraging.

There's another posibility: open a bug report, post your patch
(against the current sources), let the bug discussion follow its
natural flow.
