Yes, and there are bug reports open against Launchpad specifically
about this. For instance. Bug 258596 refers to a bug report's status
in the gna.org (GNU Savannah) bugtracker. For an example of this bug,
see Bug 256345.

What I don't understand is why it isn't at least possible to manually
update the status of an upstream task while still keeping the
reference to the upstream bug number/URL. Currently, the only options
are to refer to the upstream bug number/URL (bug watch) and keep the
status of the bug as "Unknown", or to remove the bug watch and
manually update the upstream bug's status.
