My "one-third" figure is out of those cases where I say to someone on
IRC, "you need to submit this as a bug", they say "ok, I filled in the
reporting form and it gave me number #nnnn". This sample is probably
quite biased against people who would already have been subscribed to
the -bugs list.

(In most cases I encourage people to submit their own bugs rather than
trying to own the issue for them. If it looks important, I do try and
make sure that they subscribe to -bugs first; but I can't guarantee
that they do, and nor am I in a position to track the issue to make
sure it really does show up. The one-third figure is only an impression
based on the number of cases in which I am later reminded of the bug and
go back to look for it.)
