Apparently, nobody 1)had the time, 2)had the know-how, 3)thought it important
enough, 4)remembered to do it.  :-)

Well, just to prove your theory wrong, I have never seen the need to 
build a graphical Vim. Ever. And that is probably the biggest reason I
didn't fix this bug. Because I don't want to install graphical Vim,
therefore, it was difficult for me to build and test it.

I am unassigning the bug from myself.

And BTW, instead of complaining about it not being done, why not send
in a patch instead?
