I agree here. It's not the bugs that are stressful, but the time limit to fix them. There is no way to completely avoid bugs during development and unfortunately there is not always enough time to properly test and fix.

Still I have an impression that none of it could be a "traumatic experience" on it's own. Yet being responsible for a big service outage or a failed project could, couldn't it?

Yea, it's pretty much not the bugs, but the time. Even if you are working on a personal project and haven't set a deadline yet, you will still be stressed if for example your project haven't progressed much for an arbitrary amount of time.
