Me too. 
We use Fedora in some "non-typical" production environment, hence some
"hidden" bugs affect us from time to time. Any attempt to bugzilla it
(i.e. to share the fixes with other people) does nothing -- we are
compelled to rebuild locally. :(

Sometimes even the "back-porting" of the new "rawhide" package into the
current used release is enough. It looks a bit strange -- there is a new
upstream stable version, this version works OK, is fully compatible with
the current Fedora release we use, but is present in rawhide only... We
even thought in the past of creating of some "more fast updates for
Core" repository...
