You are, of course, aware, that the function of the bug *tracking* system,
is not merely the mechanical act of transfering information in one direction
alone? :)

If someone else runs into the same problem, a search engine can bring them
to this report and possibly help them and they can possibly help resolve it
for others. Even if you close it, it still stays documented.

If someone who knows their way around the tasklist configuration file reader
and writer code stumbles upon it, they could check the diff between the two
major releases and see if there is a code path that could result in this
problem, e.g. with new code parsing old data in an unexpected manner.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
