I don't know about the bug in question, but frequently the reporter
include enough information for us to decide if a bug is a duplicate,
to reproduce it, etc.
Yes, properly reporting a bug takes time. If a reporter "can't
afford the time"
to report the bug, or respond to further questions after reporting
they shouldn't have one of our precious few developer machines...
Just properly triaging a bug report takes 5 to 20 minutes of either
Jim or Kim's
time, followed by more time from the developer to which it is assigned.
Users reporting the bug get the easy part of the task!
