When you submit a bug report, you're certainly helping--but you're helping

I'd have to disagree with you there Mr L. Non-descript bug reports are
useless of course but well-constructed, up-to-date bug reports are surely
of use to a developer who cares about his project but doesn't have time to
thoroughly test it- which is the case for most FLOSS devs. Just because a
dev hasn't spotted a flaw yet in their usage of their software doesn't mean
its not a potential showstopper for other users of that app.
