That's one part of the problem: the initial bug analysis (until we know
what caused the bug) is what often takes most of the time.

It looks like a bug.

Not sure what you mean here.  FWIW, I haven't encountered the bug in
practice.  Generally speaking, only regressions and bugs that are widely
observed are critical enough to hold up a release, and the latter only
if we have a patch, or can produce one in a reasonable amount of time.

Other than that, we sure would like to fix all bugs, but there is only a
finite amount of resources.

First step should be a simple and reliable reproducer, ideally in the
form of a testsuite patch.

Please send followup messages regarding the bug you reported to that
thread, not this one.
