My point was that the meaning of the word "always" is not precise. It
would be a lot better if the bug report says "always, tested two
times". That way I can know that the bug might need to be tested quite
a few times before seeing it.

Of course there are bugs which have probability of 100%, I guess most
of the bugs are like that. But there are also tricky bugs which have,
for example, a probability of 10% and that's why it's important to know
how many times the reporter has tested it.

This is the reason why I prefer always to use M/N notation. But this
is a minor issue, we shouldn't waste too much time on this.
