But, being said that, part of safety related development is, to cover any theoretically possible behavior. Because not doing it, leads to systematic failures which will decrease the overall system safety. Knowing this will prevent certification with according authorities, like FDA in medical equipment, LLoyds in ships, TÜV in off-road vehicles.
At the end, knowing that such bugs are just ignored with such blatant arguments fuels the image of bad software quality.
Perhaps the repro seems pathological. But fix this issue, and you may well have fixed a whole bunch of other issues that are not so pathological. Certainly, just touching Files should never force the system to reboot!
