Perhaps it doesn't end with an updated package for the version you
reported the problem in, but it often means that the bug is fixed so
future version won't have the same problem.  That is making a
difference and anything you do to help that process is surely
appreciated by many users and maintainers (even if many of the users
never notice the fixes to bugs they never had the joy of stumbling
upon :).

You must not have been clicking your heels the proper amount of times

Yes, it's very difficult for an maintainer or developer to fix a bug
that they cannot reproduce.  There's nothing specific about bugzilla
in that problem.  It'd be just as difficult of the bug reports went to
a mailing list. :)
