It is not that sophisticated.  If there is a bug, load it in latest version,
if I can replicate it: bug is confirmed. Repeat procedure with 4.0.6
portable: if bug exists go to previous branch if not it's a regression from
branch 4.0. If bug exists in all portable builds including 3.3.4 then it's
inherited from OOo

Of course this is a first coarse approach but it takes me 6 tries to narrow
down to the branch level...

Sounds interesting :) Can you do the same for tracing an LO crash under
Windows? :)
