Ok, these seems to be really minor issues. They seem to come in three groups

1. cosmetics. Annoying, but hardly dealbreaking, such as the OpenGL-based 
effects not working.
2. Ported apps not fully functional. (I suggest you keep using the old ones, 
then, if possible, or learn to live with the fact that sometimes apps you use 
gets dropped. )
3. Exotic keyboard and screen setups not working

I ignored the bit about bugs that were fixed in a point-release. Unfortunate, 
but it happens, and it is only a few months before it is fixed again.

For my money, you are looking for something a lot more stable than Gentoo. I'd 
suggest running Debian stable, or perhaps Redhats "enterprise" branch. I think 
you'd be happier there.
