You could help by commenting or voting for the bug.

Please comment here:

Don't just read the bugs, comment on how they affect you.

Please provide more detail. Thanks.

That is fine, but you should help iron out the bugs in KDE 4 that
still affect you so that you can switch when KDE 3 is no longer

Nobody ever said that KDE 4.1 would be ready for everyday use. KDE 4.2
was for most end users, and KDE 4.3 improved on that. Now there are
just the occasional issue here and there that most people who have
never seen KDE 3 don't miss, but for those that the issue does affect
they are major issues. You have to be explicit about what you need at
this point, else KDE 4.4, 4.5, etc. will also not be ready for _your_
everyday use.

Only when you let us know what you need.
