You'd be surprised to know that some Java API (including Java2D & Swing) bugs & RFEs I have submitted 12 years ago have still not been fixed.
I doubt it's Oracle's fault, as much as it was Sun's, probably a generic lack of people and resources to allocate to fixing small bugs coupled with a bad prioritization system which does not automatically increase the weight of a low-priority bug after it has spend some times/months/years in the bug-db.
On the other hand, I have always wondered what do all these people at Java/Sun/Oracle do all day long (was especially true of the JavaFX team over 2009/2010 and now I am starting to do the same about the JWS devellopment/support team considering the huge amount of things non-working correctly in this technology).
