You missed at least one important change (= vs ==).  I should have
included my comments when I reopened the bug but I'm still getting used
to bugzilla.  I'm in the middle of updating the bug report now.

I hope you allow people to change the status of bugs and to append
comments (but not edit the existing comments), even if they are not the
submitter or assignee.  When I encounter a problem I search first to see
if an existing bug describes it, and if so I may add my own comments and
possibly reopen it.  For example, a bug that someone found and thought
they fixed on FooOS might still affect BarOS, or someone might fix a bug
incompletely (as is the case for #26).

Perhaps this is a style difference but I prefer to re-use existing bug
reports rather than create duplicate ones (for the same problem only, of
course).
