because one still wants to have ObjC on non-Apple platforms as the
question was?

Yes, there are bugs reported in 2003 - but if you look, the discussion
if and how
it should be solved dates up to 2008. I don't know if that is good or
not, but
it shows there is activity and willingness to solve issues (if they
are important).

If you refer to e.g. http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?19728
there is a response and discussion. But I think you are using RIGS
(which is based on GNUstep). This appears to be in 0.2.2 state since
and the documentation says:

"Currently RIGS is very usable though far from bullet proof. You'll
find some real applications written in the Testing and Examples
directories of the source tree showing that RIGS can really be used on
a day to day basis."

Maybe, you have found a bullet...
