Why is this a pathological case?

Every project I work on has multiple components which can be worked on
separately. We have supporting documentation, we have GUI definition
graphics files, we have the code of course, we have separately
compiled libraries that go into the project, etc. There are tons of
reasons why we might check out a subfolder.

And how exactly would it be obvious? The only sign a user would have
that something is weird, is that the bug ID entry field would be
missing from the dialog. Those bugtraq properties got set up once at
project creation, nobody ever looks at or touches them anymore. I'd
bet a lot of my team members don't even know they're there or what
they do if they DO notice them.
