No problem. I understand how you feel - I get frustrated when my
hardware's broken too. For the record, RH employs two radeon developers,
Dave Airlie and Jerome Glisse, who both contribute actively to upstream
development of the driver and to maintaining it in Fedora (though Dave
is doing an increasing amount of work on the X server side, which I
think is partly why we brought Jerome in).

I'm going to have another look at your bug(s) and see if there's
anything we can look at that we didn't already...
