This one may be at the extreme, but it is one I personally encountered. I

That particular example appears to have been fixed years ago with
https://bugs.debian.org/682062
 
 
 
 
714320 was opened in 2013, and people were complaining about 714320 this year.
 
682062 was opened and closed in 2012.
 
Are people sure that 714320 really is fixed?
 
Also it appears 714320 is marked "unreproducible" and is against the wrong package.
 
If 714320 has been fixed, it should be closed, not marked unreproducible.
