It is good that you raise this issue in my opinion. I too have seen this
kind of behaviour and wondered what to do about it. I wondered if adding
a comment to the bug would help, but found no particularly transparent
or productive way to engage the person closing the bug.

I'm almost wondering if it's happening because you get karma from
closing a bug.
