Problems that go away on their own, come back on their own.

If the problem is reproducible, then at one point it was a "real" problem.
Not to say that if it's not reproducible, that it's not real. But if it is
reproducible, you may want to check if there is a reported bug, and if not,
put one in yourself with the smallest bits you can isolate. At least that
way the knowledge that it was there won't be lost. When it comes back in
some later release, that may help whoever hunts it down for good.
