Discussion here seems to have wandered far away from useful suggestions
for you, let's see if that's possible to return to that. Best way to
confirm when a bug is resolved is to subscribe to the pgsql-committers
mailing list. If a commit for this fix appears, odds are good the
original bug number will be referenced. Even if it isn't, you may
recognize it via its description. Until you see that, the bug is almost
certainly still open.

Bugs that are considered to impact the current version under development
are sometimes listed at http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Open_Items
Adding a bug to there that's not really specific to the new version may
not be considered good form by some. It is the closest thing to an open
bug tracker around though, and adding items to there means they won't be
forgotten about; it's checked regularly by developers considering when
it's a good time to release another alpha or beta.

In my mind, clarifying what circumstances it's appropriate for people to
put a bug onto the Open Items list would be a useful way to spend a
little time. Certainly more productive than trying firing more bullets
at the unkillable zombie that is bug tracking software.
