Will wonders never cease... The first one has been assigned to someone.

Actually,  FDO bug 44871 has been "assigned" since the date it was submitted during QA bug triage.  
But that means exactly squat since Cedric did not assign himself (indicating he accepted and was 
working on it).

Assignment is just not a tool that has a lot of meaning in the LibreOffice project (and most other 
FOSS) because, as has been mentioned, development and quashing of bugs is driven by the interests 
of the respective developers. Some developers will assign to themselves, some will not--personal 

Maybe there's hope after all, as I've got a list from long ago that I
never bothered to file as these were never addressed and assigned, so I
never bothered.

Can't help but notice that in the ensuing time you have moved from OSX 10.6.8  to your current 
10.8.3 build, yet YOU have not filed additional updates or status regards either issue.   Truth is 
issues with OSX builds require a lot of care and feeding given the rapid changes to Apples APIs.  
If you want things fixed you have to be engaged and nurture the issues you raise.   Please take the 
time to research the FDO Bugzilla ( ) and if not already 
identified, submit as new issues items from your list. 

You should have a look at the OSX issues meta bug and you'll get some idea.

Regarding  fdo#44871, the labeling as Distribute Rows Equally is clearly wrong.   Its function is 
documented as "Space Rows Equally" --  Adjusts the height of the selected rows to match the height 
of the tallest row in the selection, which it does.   So what you were really asking for is an 
enhancement.  Which as was pointed out in comments to 44871 would receive the best review on the 
UX-Advise list.  Did you follow up there?  Just looked and saw no record.

So, I've opened a new enhancement request in fdo#64242 and asked the UX-Advise list for 
discussion--essentially for handling Table columns and rows the UX is a bit muddled between 
Distribute and Equal Spacing actions.
