How come a bug that crashes program hasn't been addressed?

Asked by emarkay on 2010-08-29

From 2.5.1 to 2.5.3, the "Add Watermark" feature has been removed, and even attempting to select the area in the menu where it was crashes program to desktop.

See:

I don't use it often, but it's the only program that I know of that used to allow video watermarking. See this video for an example:

Just how it goes sometimes

The watermark issue has been addressed but the crash issue has not, but yes, this is just how it is. Therefore I am answering my own question with that comment.
