Personally, I just think that some tweaking should be done by the designers to "fix" a few of the glaring issues with a few of the classes, but that would require a not-insignificant amount of time investment with little return as it would not lead to increased book sales, just FAQ/errata.
In my experience, the most "hated" classes are alchemists, gunslingers, summoners, and witches. All have what abilities that break fundamental game rules and therefore lend them to OP builds. Originally, the designers developed rules that seemed necessary to maintain the balance of the system, only to later develop classes that specifically broke those rules. That makes it extremely difficult to produce ancillary content that is "fair" for core classes, without being manipulated by "advanced" classes.
Other classes like paladin receive some hate, but that is more due to the way players interpret/implement the alignment rules and less to do with the class rules.
