Chiming in on this one as well :)

IMHO this is normal. With any sizable code base bugs get introduced and 
thus discovered regularly. For most commercial applications this is not 
visible as bug tracking is kept internal, often to prevent reactions 
such as these.

I also think that developers are much more likely to report the issues 
they run into than normal users, especially because it seems that many 
modern companies only offer support to those who pay hefty support fee 
and delegate the rest of their users to use forums where they can 
conveniently ignore the complaints.

That Omnis provides access to the bug list, is commendable in my 
opinion. Especially considering the legacy Omnis has and the inability 
of letting subsystems go that are far beyond their prime as they are 
still heavily used by the user base (looking at you datafile!).

As for solving those bugs and bugs being open for a long time. Sadly 
this is also common with many development companies. Especially as hard 
to reproduce bugs or bugs that don't have much impact get driven down 
the priority list, not to mention that legacy code...
