findSimilarBugs() returns bug task you are using

Bug Description

Occasionally, when using findSimilarBugs with bug tasks you are returned the bug task for the bug report you were initially querying from.

For example:

In [6]: bug = launchpad.bugs[428017]
In [7]: [ for bug in bug.bug_tasks[0].findSimilarBugs()]
Out[7]: [428017]

This doesn't seem terribly useful to me.

351626 is another example of this.

I think this occurs because the exact same bug task is excluded but we are returning bugs and not bug tasks, so if you have a bug with multiple tasks one of the additional tasks will be returned.

From lib/lp/bugs/model/

        matching_bugtasks = [
            bug_task for bug_task in matching_bugtasks[:4*limit]
            if bug_task != self]

        matching_bugs = getUtility(IBugSet).getDistinctBugsForBugTasks(
            matching_bugtasks, user, limit)
        return matching_bugs

So 'if !=' would likely resolve this.
