The general rule I've heard is that NEWS should include "user visible
changes", but of course that leaves a lot of room for discretion.

I suppose I'd say that it depends on the bug fix.  If a bug was fixed
that people might have noticed and were having to work around, then a
perhaps a NEWS entry would be appropriate.

Of course I don't remotely consider myself an expert on the guidelines
regarding NEWS, so I'd be more than happy to hear relevant comments
and opinions.
