It was a more generic questions. Those bugs are fixed, and it's better
they are fixed than hidden.

But if enabling LFS means codepaths not well tested are used and bugs
are discovered, it's bad and good at the same time. Bad because we see
nasty bugs which make evolution crash, good because rarely used
codepaths are now used more often and those bugs can be identified and
fixed.

Now, would you recommend enabling LFS in Debian stable? I'm wondering,
especially since it's not enabled by default.

Cheers, and thanks for your time.
