I've experienced the problem you describe many times. It depends on  
the maintainer for the version of Drupal. killes has been quick to  
apply fixes to Drupal 4.7. drumm seems to hope people that people will  
just stop using Drupal 5. Other core maintainers criticize patches for  
problems they are not interested in, then ignore the patches when they  
are fixed, apparently hoping the contributor will give up. The most  
common reason maintainers are not interested in a patch is that they  
are working on a new version of Drupal which makes the patch obsolete.
