I look into the problem, provided I have time.

Most of the time I can pinpoint the source of the problem fairly quickly
(a few minutes of inspecting the error message and the source code is
usually enough). That's not always the case, I'll give you that. But on
the flip side errors get detected quickier, and I'm also often able to
prepare a PR to fix the problem, so often the fix is also applied quickier.

I know. I just don't bother doing that because that's inconvenient for
my workflow.
