I'm not so sure. For example, I *did* notice some wierd time problem with
mirroring the Debian distribution. I didn't even think this could be
related to a bug in the timezone package, but thinking back about the
symptoms, that could easily have been the reason.
If I hadn't noticed it, I would have refetched the complete distribution.
The problem with bugs like these is that people just don't make the
connection. That doesn't mean it's just "a minor annoyance", though.

This can, of course, be said about every critical bug. Does that mean we
don't need think about which bugs are critical?
