STP state via SNMP in 9304 with 8.0.01c

I have some 9304 and 9308 with 8.0.01c. They are configured for "spanning-tree single 802-1w".

I am trying to monitor the state of spanning tree with SNMP, and I can see some data, but not all.

For example, I see the root bridge, but not the root port nor the root cost:

snmpwalk 9304-2 .1.3.6.1.2.1.17.2.5.0
Hex-STRING: 04 00 00 0C DB 39 02 00

snmpwalk 9304-2 .1.3.6.1.2.1.17.2.7.0
INTEGER: 0

snmpwalk 9304-2 .1.3.6.1.2.1.17.2.6.0
INTEGER: 0

In case you are wondering wether this is, in fact, the root bridge, it is not: the CLI says its root port is 2/1, and root cost is 20001, and also its ID is different:

snmpwalk 9304-2 .1.3.6.1.2.1.17.1.1.0
Hex-STRING: 00 0C DB 40 4B 00


In the same way, I cannot see the designated bridge and port of a port:

snmpwalk 9304-2 .1.3.6.1.2.1.17.2.15.1.8

returns all 00 00 00 00 00 00, and

snmpwalk 9304-2 .1.3.6.1.2.1.17.2.15.1.9

returns all 00 01.

Since this is obviously a bug, while we wait for it to be fixed, does anybody know where else in the proprietary MIB I can get this data? I tried to grep the MIB files, but all the icf subtree seems not to be implemented in this box.

By the way, what is the proper way to report bugs in procurve products, in order to maximize the probability of seeing them fixed?
