That was my feeling as well, just wanted a second opinion since i'm new
here and just a volunteer ---
This might be my second time (second report) in as many days asking
whether a bug report should be closed and/or marked invalid. Last time
i asked, it was marked invalid (I asked last night, it was closed
invalid this afternoon). My opinion is if it's marked as invalid (with
the comment on the bug report i left describing, perhaps, why), that's
one less report to look at when we're filtering through the problems
that remain for actual ones.
