Default are bugs visually in the product backlog. When a tester files a bugs from test manager (or any other client tool), it will be shown in the teams product backlog. Now, not everybody is happy with the solution that every bug is visible in the backlog. many small bugs will blur the visual management capability of the backlog and task board, and maybe very big ones are to big to solve in the same sprint or need some more investigation and product owner collaboration.

I agree that something needs to be done to separate the 5-minute-fixes from the serious bugs, but I feel that not entering an issue for a bug opens up another can of worms. What happens when 3 months down the road, another team member comes across the fixed code or has to fix a new bug related to that code, and doesn't realize what the code is for? If there's no bug associated, and no notes on why it as changed, you're opening yourself up to regressions. That's sort of a contrived example on my part, but you get the idea.
