That may not be the best place to find bugs suitable for a university
class.  Quite often, a bug is opened in bugzilla only because it's
a particularly hard one that even the guy who originally wrote the
code involved hasn't been able to figure out in several days of trying.

If it's in the bugzilla, it's probably relating to a problem with
specific hardware/BIOS levels, or it's a *very* subtle bug involving
race/locking conditions or lifetime/refcount issues or similar problems.
