Description Taylor Smock 2012-10-06 09:35:14 EDT
Description of problem:
abrt asked to report a problem, and when it finished processing it gave a link to a bug, closed as WONTFIX.
For once, I followed the bug link to see why it was closed as WONTFIX.
It was closed due to the Fedora version (F14) leaving support.

How reproducible:
Sometimes -- the generated information must be close enough to a previous bug that has been closed as WONTFIX.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a bug that has been closed as WONTFIX automatically
2. Reproduce that bug 
3. Have abrt report it.
Actual results:
No report, didn't check for automatic WONTFIX

Expected results:
Report bug against new version, possibly clone old bug.

Additional info:
See bug 718677 (F18 ABRT did not report a bug becuase it saw WONTFIX status on this bug).
Normally I don't follow the links to see why something was posted as WONTFIX, so some bugs that have been reported earlier than F16 and are still present will not be reported.

I just ran up against this for a gnome-shell crasher in F18:
