I connected my eclipse mylyn with the scipy trac tickets and have
tickets that are assigned to me on my local computer where I can mark
them as read or unread. But for now I like the web interface better.
But this works after some trial and error.

Also, since David mentioned sql queries in another thread, I set up a
report that sorts tickets by change time. It helps to see which
tickets where recently commented on. But since this is the first time,
I do this, and I'm not very familiar with sql, this still needs
improvements.
However, this helps with the main problem, I had with the trac ticket
listing, and maybe some additional specialized reports will make
keeping an overview of tickets easier, even with the current trac
version.
