I wonder how Apple reacts on bug feedback. Still in Logic 8 I reported about a bug in the timeline. Recording long tracks with more than 60 Minutes the timeline switches from 0:59:00 minutes to 2:00:00. This is a very ugly bug I work with long concert live recordings. I have reported this bug more than a dozen times - even for Logic 8. But this bug still is alive in 9.1.7. No reaction and still no bug fix.

When you say "reported," are you reporting it via Apple's Bug Reporter site at

I hear rumblings that bug count from that site is being watched more closely these days, so that may help. And, as much as it offends me to suggest duplicating work, if you can get others to submit the bug as well, that might help.
