I'd urge you not to give up on Emacs maintenance so quickly, and
provide the reproducer requested by Paul.  Please give us a chance to
analyze the problem you are having and consider whether and how it
could or should be fixed.  Leaving the problems unfixed because we
failed to look into them is not a good paradigm in maintaining such a
flexible and powerful software package as Emacs is.

Thanks in advance.
