Exceptions usually should be reported all at least once. Otherwise bugs
may be unnoticed.

In theory it would be best to investigate each of such issues, find the
real cause and fix it. Practically this is not possible, so some of these
bugs exist a very long time.
Having more bug finders and developers fixing bugs would help. Usually
each developer fixes all bugs he encounters completely instead of doing
such workarounds like deleting troublesome config (at least I do so).
