Any real good reason for running a kernel with bugs, misbehaviours and
even several security issues?

To download the kernel src.rpm of the latest FC3 security update kernel
would have been the right choice. The release notes explain how to
handle that src.rpm. Using rpmbuild the right way patches the base
kernel tarball with the set of patches the Fedora kernel has.

Btw. the set of patches of the current FC3 kernel can be online viewed
through CVS web interface:
