Although I have (so far) never fixed a bug in Zope 3 (but posted
several patches for Zope 2), I can confirm this:

   There are bugs that do not need a test once they are fixed.
   All kinds of "NameError" and "AttributeError" fall into this
   Requiring to write a unit test for these or similarly trivial
   bugs is silly -- especially if there is not yet a testing file
   for the module (such that a trivial test would suffice).
