Okay.  Sorry.  I'll fix that today then, as soon as the bug report is
updated in fact.

I would rather people used existing bug reports as well, but allowing
anybody to modify the state of a bug seems like a recipe for disaster to
me.  I am not sure of the best way to fix this, but in GNATS anybody can
modify and attach comments to a bug, but only certain people can change
the state.  That seems to have worked so far, but I'm not sure if it's
good or not.
