From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)

Description of problem:
I'm not sure what mechanism IBM have for adding their "additional 
comments" to bugzilla (is it an e-mail gateway? it would be 
interesting to know), but ít seems it might be broken.

See bug 142862 for an example.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Post a bug about hostnames
2. Get lots of e-mail about kernel hacking
3. Ask what is going on
4. Kernel hacking discussion continues

Lack of interest.

Reopening. I apologize that this fell off my radar since I have been
mainly focused on 2.18 BZ bugs trying to get it rolled out asap. Since
the code bases are in most ways different, I have not given enough
attention to older bugs. In my understanding, they are simple just
using a HTTP POST mechanism to add the comments from their internal
BZ. I would hope that in the future they will use the XMLRPC
bugzilla.addComment method to do so which is cleaner. What part of the
conversation in bug 142862 seems broken?

All of it! Everything after my initial bug-opening comment has nothing
to do with my bug :/

I sent an email to gjohnson@austin.ibm.com to see if he could tell me why their
bug associations are screwed up. Sorry for the inconvenience this is causing.
