I agree.  Also, another thing that is really frustrating is that the 
issue number does not appear in the listing.  So when you are trying to 
refer to another issue, and try finding it by scanning the list, you 
have to mouse over the title and extract the information mentally from 
the url.

Google code issues are much, much better in these regards.
