I say "short order" as recently I had such a case. The bug had been reported multiple times but none of the reports had any details that led me to the same result as the reporters were seeing. The case in question is Unhandled NilObjectException in FolderItemExtensions.$CreateAliasHandle%o
%o o (#15274)
This report made finding and fixing the bug a very simple task as we could see in the debugger what was going on and why this caused the exception it did. The fix required only 20 minutes once we had this information.
The key here is that user had taken the time to find the steps required to reproduce the issue very reliably and reported them.
THAT's what make s a great bug report.
Having the report of an issue is one thing but having reliable steps to reproduce the bug is great because it makes fixing the bug a lot easier.
