Really necessary.

I guess so too (I only find it by compiling).

Hmm... for urgent bugs, the reporters really need supply the failing
cases with logs showing what happens.

Bugs can be sort of by urgent priority (e.g. this bug is not urgent).
but for most of bugs may cause critical issue which depends on the using
environments, and can be 'imagined' by us.

Hmm... I guess: for our case, what your meaning is "fixes-none-urgent",
not "fixes-none-critical", is it correct ?  :-)
