I also have filed a bug report with apple in the past to fix an accelerate bug.  The key I think was to clearly demonstrate and isolate the problem like any good bug report should have.  In my case, they got back to me within a week and the bug was fixed a week after that.  The release schedule is a bit difficult however but we should file one in any case, especially with Yosemite being under active testing and 10.9.4 in the testing stages.

I'm also optimistic they'll fix it. E.g. they also fixed the
-mno-fused-madd screwup they did with their python installation in 10.9
in the minor release 10.9.3. So with a little luck 10.9.4 will already
have the fix.

The bug has now been filed by Matthew, thanks for that.
