In my experience, that is not usually a correct assumption - it could
often be that ra_neon is seeing the same issue but is hiding the
fundamental error in other ways.

Frankly, IMO, if you break the tests, you should fix the code. It's
not fair to have people say, "Oh, I broke the code and I won't bother
to fix it." That's not how I believe we should operate 'round here.
If you need help understanding the code, plenty of us are around to
assist - but if you are the one who breaks some code, you should make
a legitimate attempt to fix it. A lot of us put a lot of work to get
the code fully passing the regression tests - and to have folks
essentially say, "I broke the code and won't fix it" isn't respectful
neighborly behavior in my view.
