Yes. Understood. On the other hand, however, if I required a ticket and 
a test case for every error report before fixing it, lot of bugs won't 
get fixed at all. People tend to mention the error and then disappear if 
they are asked for any additional effort.

Also note that breaking the master doesn't really matter. It's a 
development version and isolating new and potentially harmfull patches 
from the stable codebases is the very reason for its existence.

Thus, I would say, let's fix all the bugs we can in the master. And 
apply a formal procedure for backporting to stable releases where any 
problem actually hurts.
