I don't see the problem with security bugs being no different than other bugs either. In any case, you have to triage the bugs and work on the most serious ones first. Security bugs that are likely to be operationalized or that already have been will be assigned high importance, but so will non-security bugs like data-loss bugs. Security bugs are not by any means the only ones that can ruin your day if they manifest themselves on your computer while it's doing something important.
