I have logged a bug, which has been marked as a duplicate of #22498.
When I enter the number in the "show" box at the top of the page and click,
I see this error message:
Sorry; you do not have the permissions necessary to see bug
This is a tad annoying ... since my bug has been marked resolved, I'd like
to see the status of the pre-existing "duplicate" entry.
The bug that this marked as a duplicate of is a private bug unfortunately. I
have spoken the developers about linking to private bugs and that they need to
make sure that the proper comments are added to the public bugs to show how to
resolved the problem. I have added a comment to bug 22498 stating this problem.
