Bug Description

There are six places on the task page that claim or imply what one is currently looking at is a bug, when it is in fact a task.

On a task page, one can see many things which imply that what one is looking at is a bug, which is pretty confusing:

Things that make it pretty clear that the page is a bug:
'Malone bug #'

'more information on this bug...'

'more malone bugs...'

The following could probably be clarified, since they do reference a bug, at least:
'Bug title'
'Bug description'
'Bug status'

Hrm, this is only true of Product Bug Tasks, as opposed to Package Bug Tasks. Still bizarre.

Hrm, this appears to be the task/bug distinction. Blah. I'm retitling to ''more information on this bug...' implies that the task is a bug'. Hrm. If I can figure out how to do that. :)

This is the topic of DemystifyingBugsAndBugTasks, and Brad has been working on this page before anyway.
