When I attempted to access bug 223446 I receive an access denied message stating "You are not authorized to access bug #223446."  If you are not going to allow everyone to view bug 223446 then I think you should reopen this entry.  I'm having a boot time problem that is difficult to debug without the log data, if I open a new bug will it also be marked as a duplicate to the bug I cannot access?
