Mantis (http://www.mantisbt.org) provides the closest to this I've seen in a
while.

You can create a clone of an issue and tie the two issues together with a
dependency relationship ("related to", "depends on", "prereq of", etc.):

- Create a general issue for the bug (let's say issue #42)
- Create a clone (#43) that's a child of #42. In other words, #43 blocks #42
until #43 is marked as complete. Make #43 for release X.
- Create another clone (#44) that's a child of #42 and make it for release Y.

Now, Peter Valdemar Mørch originally requested:

Unfortunately, Mantis doesn't help with this at all.

However, Pete also wrote:

If you're willing to do the manual work of outlining which releases you ~know~
contain the bug, then my aforementioned solution in Mantis might work for
you. I would guess other bug tracking packages provide similar
functionality, so you might be able to adapt that strategy and at least
improve your issue tracking a little bit.
