Apologies, reply based on your Subject.
File a new bug against the version that has the problem,
after *first* checking is the same version bug existing.
I did check. The bug exists, was reported about five years ago, and was, at
the time, fixed.
So what I want to know:
Do I add a comment to the original bug report, even though that specific
instance of the bug was fixed?
Or do I create a new bug report, and reference the bug report where it
What's tripping me up is that the bug was fixed, and the bug report is
therefore "closed." (I note that Inkscape doesn't actually seem to have a
"closed" status, but "fixed" seems to play the same role.)
On the one hand, adding a comment to the end of a fixed bug will prevent
duplication... but if it's "fixed," am I commenting on something no one will
ever look at? On the other hand, creating a new bug report will ensure someone
looks at it, but am I just creating needless work for someone who is going to
have to close the report because it already exists?
