Thanks, Henrik. You've summed up my feelings word-for-word (though I
didn't quote it all).
Brian Murray responded to this issue earlier today with a Greasemonkey
script that will help triagers avoid these bugs. That's a decent quick
patch, but:
1) It forces triagers to use Firefox
2) It forces triagers to use Greasemonkey
3) Triagers have to know about the script's existence.

It's an inherently flawed solution that misses the fact that some devs
are using "incomplete" status in contradiction of the Ubuntu wiki
definition. We could change the definition, I suppose, but that would
make the status less useful in my opinion.
