Oh, I know how to do it, I was just being awkward to make a point. If
someone cares enough about a bug to fix it then writing a regression
test ensures that it stays fixed.

In this particular case I assume the person who committed the change
tested it as described in 1905 and that it works. Who is responsible
for testing it on the branch? Is the release manager expected to
merge the STATUS changes, run the regression tests and then look for
manual regression tests as well? Does the release manager have to run
the manual regression tests before the merge to observe the failure,
thus ensuring that they are being done correctly?

Even just staying fixed should not be taken for granted. In the past
some of my libsvn_wc modifications have changed, i.e. "broken", things
that were not regression tested.
