I'd say yes here, following Michal's example of kernel bugs.
I'm a bit reluctant regarding the submission into the soruceforge
tracker, as it might get flooded, if people start pushing their error
reports witout checking if they are related/identical to other
reports. But that said, I don't think users will go through the effort
of going to the error-reporting website and start soring and pushing

Kind regards,
