Is it erased, overwritten or appended to?
The file looks like it is completely overwritten.
Or better yet, where I can find someone to actually answer my question?
I filed a bug, 9005051, yet there is no guarantee my bug is even a bug or will even get posted to the bug database (and no reasoning is even provided when your bug is NOT posted to the public bug database).

Me! Me! I know the answer to that question...
Oracle is more than happy for you to pay them for a support\service contract of which part of that will be that you can ask them questions and they will answer them. Real Oracle engineers and perhaps the very people who created the code in the first place. Or at least the ones in charge of it now.

Yes that is true.
But I suspect, strongly, that if you have a big enough contract that every bug you post to the database, and that you tell oracle about, will appear promptly and be addressed promptly.
And if you have a smaller (but not really small) Oracle contract I am rather certain that you can obtain a custom fix.
Alternatively you can download the source, figure out the problem, and fix it yourself. Then apply it to your running services.
