Well, I think it's the way bugs sometimes have patches attached to them, 
or sometimes a patch gets put in the patch tracker and a link to it posted 
in the bug tracker.

I guess there is a distinction, but it's too high up on sf.  You can't get 
a list of all issues assigned to one developer, for instance, or the fact 
that the "groups" field for the various trackers has diverged over much.  
I really could have done with a "2.2.1 issues" view -- instead I had to 
ping back and forth between bugs and patches.  Etc.

Does that explain my grievance?  I can try harder if you want.
