Be assured, whining gets you nowhere, in the worst case developers are even 
less likely to fix the bugs, or they loose time for writing angry mails back! 
The only way to be sure something gets fixed is to do it yourself ;-) or to 
pay someone to fix it(No guarantee that someone accepts the offer though)

There is work done on this issue. The biggest Problem is that we need a glx 
extension to inject a clip list into the X server. For the viewport placement 
problem a patch was posted here 2 or 3 weeks ago for testing. This patch 
addressed only the placement of the viewport, but not the clipping. What you 
can do is to test it with your application and report how it works. (Sorry, I 
don't have the archive link handy)
