That's a good question. I remember that happened for me once in more
than 20 years. So the problem of a racing condition in fixing a bug
is not very frequent. I'd think just answering the bug with "I'll take
over" might be sufficient to keep other potential reporters away. Just
make sure to tag it help (via
Control: tags -1 help
in case you might stumble upon some problems and report that problem
to "give it back".
