I see; thanks.

However, the submitter needs to be informed of a bug closing. What shouldn't
happen, perhaps, is to include all of the addresses in the same mail. Or,
better, the bug tracking system should use only instructions in the mail body to
close a bug - it shouldn't just close a bug if the address *-done is a
recipient. Anyway, I'll leave solving the bug-tracker problems to others more
qualified. Obviously, it is fragile, overly complex, and needs some improvement.

I hope that this bug (#3938) is still open for now, in any case.
