Is it really needed to waste your time like this? It makes much more sense to 
actually fix the bugs where they are, and those certainly look like one liners 
in the appropriate places (or at least not more code than what you added here).
Code like this should only ever be considered with release pressure, and in the 
release branch. It has no place in trunk, and only leads to poor code quality 
in the end.

Besides, actually having a test case at hand to reproduce the bug (or even be 
annoyed by it) greatly helps finding the time and motivation to fix bugs.
