Now that might be something you want to take up with the developer. A fix, that doesn't fix what it's aimed at isn't really helpful. However, that still doesn't change the fact, it's still a known issue, and there is no meaning to try and find someone to put the blame on. It's already put right where it belongs, on the ACA1231, and it's performance tweaks.
(I assumed that what "doesn't work" is the fix, not the swapping of harddrives, even if you didn't specify what solution it was you didn't agree with...)
