I say beat it up and file problem reports for it.  No better way to  
get it in tip top shape.  I'll assume you're doing C testing.  If C++,  
I'd say wait a while, as C++ is only 3-5% of the way there.  I'd  
probably say, only file 10-20 reports, and then stream more in as  
those are fixed.  This should help reduce the work that you do and  
self limit so you don't file a thousand or more bug reports, which, I  
suspect we wouldn't want.
