The main and reliable way the tracker uses is the email address you use.
If you send it to <bugnb>@debbugs.gnu.org, then it won't pay attention
to the subject and will not generate a new bug-number for it.

OTOH if you send an email to address@hidden or
address@hidden, this is usually presumed to be a new bug report,
and the subject is checked for some common patterns to catch
common mistakes.
