[Bug] Boomkin dead to Blizz

Bug Report
I thought it was just one of the bugs that came with the new patch, but I am still getting the message "You cannot do that while dead" upon trying to leave an instance in moonkin form. Changing back to caster form allowed me to leave. Not sure if the same effect would happen with other transformations or not.
It affects all Druid forms, and has been reported quite frequently.

Oddly enough, Blizzard seems blissfully unaware of it. Neither fix nor acknowledgement is anywhere to be seen.

Just because they don't post, it doesn't mean they are unaware of the issue.
Then what purpose is served by the "known issues" list?

It's just to say - these are some issues we are aware of, but we know of others, which we do not wish to acknowledge knowing about? This seems a bit immature..
It's there (now?):
* Druids cannot enter or leave LFD dungeons while in shapeshift form (they are told they are dead).

EDIT: Ahh, thread was updated today :)
Hooray.
It's important to keep in mind that a game as large as WoW has numerous bugs at any given point in time, and this list grows exponentially when a large patch is applied, as various unexpected things can occur.

When fixing bugs in any game, they must be prioritized in order of importance, and something like this would be 2nd to the bottom (the very last being aesthetic bugs). The reason being while this is unintended, there is a very simple workaround of simply cancelling your form, and the game will allow you to port out.
