Just to clarify, if bugs N was first reported against package A and
then get reassigned to package B, than reportbug -N N + x will lead
reportbug to query information for package A instead of package B.

That's because we use the information in the report body, where
package A is mentioned. We will fix it when we'll move to SOAP bts
