This question appears to be off-topic because it is a bug report and not an actual question. These should be reported to Blender's tracker instead.

Emphasis mine

We usually close questions which were asked buggy behavior as bug reports, regardless of whether or not the question was not phrased as a bug report, or even of the OP seemed to realize there was a bug (related: When should a question be closed as a bug report?).

TL;DR: We get "actual questions" which should still be closed as bug reports, as they pertain to a bug (though often the OP isn't aware of this).

To reflect this, can we change the close reason to something like the following?

This question appears to be off-topic because it is a result of a bug in blender. Bugs should be reported to the tracker. Also see this guide on how to write a useful bug report.

Not completely happy with this phrasing, perhaps someone will have a better idea...

  • $\begingroup$ The phrasing seems fine to me but with the meta post that came after this. It will have to be put on hold for now. $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Jan 15 '15 at 0:15

The new wording as of September 30, 2015 for the bug report close reason reads:

This question appears to be about an issue caused by a bug in Blender. These should be reported to the official bug tracker.
