Yes, and this is what I usually do for bugs that I find. Submitting your
issue and confirming it, is different from it being confirmed just
because it's the default bugzilla setting. Of course, this can be
considered an overhead, though it's simple a second step after pressing
submit (that IMHO ensure carefulness).
