i think the current regression tracking methods that Rafael uses work
very well and i'd like to thank Rafael for those efforts - to me as a
subsystem maintainer it is a _very_ useful thing.

In this case there was no real harm from the "this bug is already fixed"
condition - just an extra email. Real harm would only come from missed
regressions or from incorrectly closed regressions - but those are not
happening.
note that there is no "robot" involved in changing the state of bugs -
the real important work here is done by Rafael and checking whether a
bug is still relevant is an inevitably manual work. The mails and
reports are auto-generated but crawling discussions and determining the
status of a regression is very hard to automate.
