Just to be clear, I'm not placing any blame on you. It's easy to miss
that kind of thing in a review. The onus is on the submitter to ensure
that anything he/she sends in has been both compile and runtime tested.

This is solid advice. Sending out untested patches without EXPLICITLY
saying so is reckless and irresponsible, and causes harm to your
reputation as well. Trust is an important part of being successful in an
open source project.
