I would say that there are two bugs in the case you are describing:  the
one you meant to fix and the one which is the lack of any tests for the
module / class / whatever.  I would bet that spending your thirty
minutes adding minimal tests to such a module is a *higher* value
activity than fixing most bugs, because it makes it easier for you (or
someone else) to fix that bug and others in that module.
