Bug#474742: debbugs: cannot clone merged bug
I tried to clone a merged bug report in order to reassign the clone to
some other package, but got this:
> # Automatically generated email from bts, devscripts version 2.10.20
> clone 468191 -1
Bug#468191: qt-x11-free-dbg: Maximize a window does not work correctly when in duealhead mode using xrandr
Bug is marked as being merged with others. Use an existing clone.
I'm not really interested in reassigning any one of the original
merged bugs. They are for the original package and the
reporter/maintainer probably likes them to remain where they are.
Also the wording "Use an existing clone" doesn't make much sense since
the original bugs weren't cloned, but rather merged.
