Everyone agrees that the maintainer can close unreproducable bugs for which
the bug reporter provides no further input.
However that has nothing to do with the topic at hand, which is of a
maintainer closing bugs which could be tested so trivially that it would be
easier to test for the existence of the bug than to close the bug report.
