Well, "etch-ignore" implies that the bug has been given a pass by the
release team for that release.  I think you rather want to tag the bug
"lenny+sid" to indicate the bug is not present in etch.

But I'm glad to see this done - it's a pity that my dear etch is being so
maligned in the bug graphs ;)
