no! "confirm" means "confirm that this report belongs into this bug data
base". <insert your favorite distributor here>'s bugs don't -> resolve
as invalid right away.
otherwise you would have to confirm almost every report, as most of them
are real, even if it's a case of PBKAC *). i don't see a difference between
a user's mistake and one of a distributor from the bts point of view.
