1.  I would give the original reporter less than six months to respond.  
I would wait no more than a month for a response before closing as 

2.  The purpose of needsmoreinfo is that the original reporter did not 
supply sufficient information to reproduce the reported problem.  If a 
reported problem can be tested, and the problem determined, then the bug 
should not be placed in a needsmoreinfo status.  Another status would 
apply, like NEW or CONFIRMED, at this point.
