What to do if upstream doesn't fix bug?

actually kde-partitionmanager is completely broken in F18, F19 and 
rawhide. This is because KDE have switched to udisks2 backend and it 
seems to me that solid (a component of kdelibs) doesn't correctly parse 
udisks2 output.

I've opened a bug [1] in KDE tracker six months ago, but it doesn't seem 
to get too much attention... I also opened a bug in bugzilla as a 
reminder/note for everyone that hits this problem [2]. So, what 
alternatives have I? Should I retire kde-partitionmanager from F18 and 
above? Or can I leave it completely broken in functionality with the 
hope that the bug will eventually be fixed?

Thank you
