Please try the dev-snapshout, it incorporates quite some changes to the registration process.

At admin/content/node-type/profile/profile is the "Use on Registration" checked

Having the same issue.

Unfortunately, our site went live before we found this bug. Now we have a ton of users registering while skipping required fields.

As stated above, this should be fixed in recent releases. So update and please reopen if you are sure this bug occured with using beta4 or a later dev snapshot.

I am still facing this bug on fresh D6 installation.
Steps I followed:

1. Create a field, say Gender, don't make it 'required' and don't hide it from registration form.
2. Yes, now we can see it on registration form.
3. Now hide it and it will gone, offcourse.
4. Make it as 'required' now. And you will not see this field on registration form, obviously because it is hidden.
5. Also this field will not appear in the list since the fields which are not required are listed there.

To make it appear on registration form, we first need to uncheck 'Required' box. Then uncheck it from hide fields list, and then make it required again.

Is this right behavior? I am not sure about it though.

A solution to this might be, removing the field from hidden fields list when we make it as required.
