You can help by fixing the crashes or validation errors. Additionally there
are a number of scripting tasks to make the information a bit pretty.

IMHO it makes no sense to treat them as normal bugs or check the bug
reports. The bug numbers in there are just part of the name of the file. It
does not mean that they have any relations to the bug report. From my point
of view the crash testing is more a developer tool that we use similar to
unit tests to improve quality. From a QA perspective I think you can just
enjoy the numbers and the improved quality.
