It's generally a good idea (though not a strict requirement) to have
issues reported for all fixes and refer to them in the commit message.
This makes it easier to see what's changed in a release (you only need
to look at a nice report in Jira instead of going through the svn
log), and also helps when someone later looks at the code history and
try to find a better context to particular changes.

It may seem a bit silly to do this for simple changes like this where
filing the issue probably takes more time than committing the changes,
but it does pay off in the long run.
