As a reporter, I can assure you that I feel exactly the other way
around. It takes time to write good bugreports, and if they languish for
several years only to eventually get closed because they "seem to have
been fixed" makes me angry. I consider a polite "I tried to reproduce it
but failed, could you confirm that this is fixed for you as well?" to be
much more respectful of my time and contribution.
