I’m not sure if this is really the case: If a new patch bundle is
submitted, with amended (and thus different) patch ids, this should be
independent from the previous submission.

If the new submission just adds patches to the bundles, but leaves the
patches that are also in the previous bundle in tact, then darcswatch
will indeed mark both tickets as accepted, which is, in fact, correct.

Or I’m still not getting the situation you are referring to :-)
