 My intended meaning was not "the bug cannot be closed because the
 testbeds are still affected", but rather "since my experience is with
 testbeds that are not running -current, I'm afraid the question of
 whether or not I have seen the problem recently is not actually
 relevant to determining whether or not the bug has been fixed".
