I didn't respond earlier because we've reached my level of ignorance too.
If I were you, I might try to narrow the problem a little further.
Eventually I would write a Bugzilla bug report telling the maintainers
the symptoms, what I had done, including things that didn't work as well
as things that seemed to work.
If I had a workaround, I wouldn't expect much help from a maintainer
because I would assume they have other problems to solve where a
workaround is not known.
If my Bugzilla bug report happened to be in an area a maintainer was
already digging in, the maintainer might take an interest and ask me to
do things to help gather more information.
