Yea, trac can be useful. Examining tickets... even closed tickets can  
yield solutions to common problems.

Oh and remember to close your ticket out if somebody solves your  
problem in another way. I know I've seen one or two of my issues  
solved, but not through my ticket. Duplication sucks, but sometimes  
it's purely accidental by a different point of view.

And not to mention that support forms exist on wordpress.org for a  
highly visible public reason.
