The problem there is a number of factors:

1) Developers don't want FAQs, and generally take a dim view of
end users (see mplayer).

2) Users assume the bug has already been reported.

3) End users usually don't know how to generate good bug reports.
"It doesn't work" never cuts it.  Any bug you report has to be repeatable
by the developers.
