+1 also.
I spent less than half the time on my first fix (so far) understanding the
problem, reproducing it, coding it and learning about the code review

Much more than half the time was spent on reverse engineering existing
tests to be able to add new ones (which had to use features not used by the
existing tests) and asking for advice even on where to add the tests.

It would have been more efficient for everyone had some test examples been
proposed to me.
