Could you please add a knowledge-base article for the following long-standing bug in LR 3 and 4?

After about 1500-1700 keywords, the Keyword List pane fails very ungracefully on Windows -- not all keywords show, and many of those that do show can't be clicked. This bug has been frequently reported in the past:

The workaround is to introduce a hierarchy.

Since the bug has been outstanding for so long without any sign that it is going to be fixed, a knowledge-base article would help everyone learn about and workaround the bug more efficiently.
