Not really, but realistically closed PRs are not reopened except by
people who already know about them. A different person who comes along
with the same problem won't look for a match among issues that are
supposedly already fixed... even if they search the database at all.

That's true. But the existence of this discussion in the PR itself
should prevent that. :-)

(The reason I've been arguing for a "stuck" state is to make this
clear, though. There are quite a few PRs in this situation.)
