I think Stefan is asking me, not you.    I don't think you should feel 
any sense of guilt.   I was the one who closed the ticket sans 
regression test.   I tend to still be of the opinion that a bug fix 
without a regression test is better than no bug fix at all.   

Obviously, whether future changes actually fix a bug (without 
introducing new ones) is a strong argument for regression tests, and I 
gratefully accept all tests submitted.
