  So you're not willing to upgrade to a supported version.  But you want us to track down *again* and fix *again* bugs which were tracked down and fixed years ago.

  No, that's not the right thing to ask.

  Smily faces don't make your request any more appropriate.

  It's open source.  No one is getting paid to help you.

  (a) Install 2.2.10

  (b) fix it yourself

  (c) live with it

  Pick one.  These are your only choices.

  It is really not appropriate to demand that other people work for free when you're not willing to do anything yourself.
