Is stripping the ports bits sufficient:

"If in doubt about whether a problem you observe has the same underlying
cause as an existing bug, file a new bug for it rather than adding to
the existing bug; closing duplicate bugs is easier than tracking the
"partly-fixed" state of a bug that has over time changed what issues it

or should something else be said about opening bugs that (may) affect
multiple components?
