I think that because when there is a public beta, more users will use the software and run into these problems. Hence increasing the pressure on the developers responsible for that part (or annoy a developer so much that he will fix it).

I think all developers have a list of most hated bugs in kde4. On the top of my list is the broken KWallet, which makes developing a mailclient very hard. Again, I'm not saying your bug is not important, but it is a bug and _can_ be fixed during the beta period, it's not enough reason to extend the alfa period for it.
