How many fixed the problem and never published the fix?

Not many I bet, at least not for significant bugs. Perhaps trivial one liners.

At least I do it quite often. I have submitted too many patches to projects where I got no reaction at all. (The latest one was OpenCA; boy, that code is in a bad state for a security-related software project.)

Therefore, if this is a project where I didn't have contact before, I try the waters first and send a small patch that can be made with modest effort. If there comes no reaction (and I recognize that an email with "your patch is not used because we want to do it differently" is a reaction), I simply drop it and fix the irking bugs in my private copy.
