Is it a joke?

Avoiding wasting developer and QE time for manually checking logs is the
main reason why we fix and backport obscure test suite failures.  We are
usually constrained by QE resources for backports, but I think we now
have a mindset that the QE cost for such fixes is actually negative:
Sure, there is another bug to validate, but it will pay off pretty
quickly because you don't have to worry about the failing test ever
