        Umm, no. It is left to the discretion and judgement of the
 developer.  Like others in the thread, I, too, tend to ask the
 submitter if the bug can still be reproduced, and, if so, to resubmit
 a log to see if any additional information has turned up.

        What's with the recent push to get every little things written
 down into policy, so the developer no longer is required to have an
 ability to think, or exercise any judgement whatsoever?

After the correction has been found to be in error, it will be
impossible to fit the original quantity back into the
equation. --anonymous
