So the "Supported" LTS is not "Ubuntu"?

Still Ubuntu. Also, still "Supported"

Whatever has been claimed to have occurred, it didn't actually fix the
crash, and I still periodically encounter it and have it eat my screen

I want it fixed in Ubuntu, not "just that one version of ubuntu".  From

ubuntu is whatever the latest version is, the rest are just ignored?
What part of that actually has support?
