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).
