This helps NO ONE. And yes, you can't expect anything to be fixed, when you doesn't report it. We have around 170 plugins in repository! Developers can't check all of them by themselves. They don't even use most plugins by themselves. Some plugins are used only by few users so when something gets broken, it's much less chance to get report due to behavior like yours -> of course it won't be fixed. But obviously if it doesn't bother you that much to simply fill bug report on forum/tracker then why should it bother NG dev who isn't using that plugin at all?
On opposite side and to prove my point, here you can see how great support users can get if they care enough... http://forum.miranda-ng.org/index.php?topic=3757
