I *think* I'm referring to the case of a patch being amended and being
sent as a new ticket (the best practice IMHO is just to attach to the
same ticket, but not everybody does that because it's not automatic).

The scenario there is that we manually obsolete the old ticket.

But then when the new patch gets applied, instead of the new ticket
being marked accepted, the old ticket does.  So that's two problems:

- the old ticket is marked accepted when it should be left obsoleted
- the new ticket is left needs-review, when it should be marked

Anybody want to dig up an example?  I think you have to search for
'obsoleted -> accepted'
