The large-font "Please read" section on the issues front page explains why:

"We depend on the mailing list as a first level of filtering for our bug
tracker. Without it, the tracker would be full of duplicate issues,
non-issues, and unreproducible issues."

Or, more directly:

There's no point in having an issue which looks like it could quite likely
be a quirk in some NFS software, and nothing to do with Subversion at all.

The issue tracker is supposed to be a developer to-do list. Having a todo
item which just says (effectively) "There might be a mysterious problem"
doesn't allow us to take any action to solve.
