That is: if you didn't fix a bug *that was user-visible in a release*.  
There's no need to file a bug if you discover and fix some issue in the 
same development cycle in which it was introduced (if you discover it but 
don't quickly fix it, you should file the bug to make sure it doesn't get 
lost).
