Data lost when converting LR3 catalog to LR4

After converting my LR3 catalog to LR4, I noticed a lot of my data is missing.

In the Slideshow module; all Intro Screens, Ending Screens, Soundtracks, etc for previously created slideshows are missing. All those values have been reset to default values.

In the Web module; all Site Titles, Collection Titles, Collection Descriptions, etc for previously created web galleries are also missing. Again, all those values have been reset to default values.

This means that I cannot recreate my slideshows and web galleries in LR4 unless I manually reenter all the data. This is unacceptable to me as I have over 100 web galleries that I have created.

I noticed the problem with the Web module two months ago and reported it on this site and still have not received any help on this issue. After a month, I posed the question as to whether this was the right forum to report problems and expect them to get looked at. I used the title "Is this the right place to report problems with Lightroom 4. Someone went in and changed the title to "LR4: problems converting catalog from LR3". But I still haven't received any acknowledgement of the problem or that someone is looking at it.
