Bug Description

I filed this bug today:
  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ipmitool/+bug/1576812

But it was not showing up in the bug list at <https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ipmitool/>

Only two bugs showed up there; though I noticed that the sidebar on this page lists 3 open bugs.

The bug was filed using the somewhat atypical url 'https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ipmitool/+filebug?field.title=[MIR]+ipmitool&field.status=Incomplete&field.tags=yakkety' (fields hinted via http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/component-mismatches.svg).

On a hunch, I went into the bug, changed its status to 'New', then back to 'Incomplete'.

It appears that internally, Launchpad allows a bug to be opened in state 'Incomplete' instead of in state 'Incomplete (without response)', but that this bug will then not show up in the index because this is not one of the bug states shown by default (and not even a state that's selectable from the advanced bug search).

I think +filebug should either disallow 'field.status=Incomplete', or map it to Incomplete (without response).
