I also noticed the following:

I did an upload of xfree86-1 for alpha as well as source+i386.

dinstall processed the alpha binary upload first, and for some reason
interpreted these as an NMU (strange, considering my name and signature was
on the *.changes file).  So it marked them all as fixed.

Then, a few minutes later, when it saw the source upload, it closed the
bugs for real.

Maybe dinstall should batch bug operations for the end of its run and
eliminate redundant operations without ever hitting the BTS with them?
