I am pretty sure a subset of these closed bugs are
bugs when a maintainer updates the software. Sometimes, when you
forward the report upstream, they don't understand the output either,
and say "it may be fixed, just update and try". You update the
software, put it to testing, and ask the user if it is fixed for him.
The user doesn't respond as usual. Then you mark it as fixed without
really knowing what's going on. Then you have such statistics. YAY!
If you as a maintainer close it as fixed instead of 'insufficient data'
then you are at fault. I never close as fixed unless I have
confirmation (or I know because i tested/fixed myself).
