I'm not saying that, it's just what I would suggest to bugs owners or bugzilla admins. This is what I interpreted from that page:

    The problem described is not a bug. 
Each one of those bug reports contains logs for (at least) three different crashes, one of them is already solved. So, maybe, the problem described isn't specifically a bug.

    The problem described is a bug which will never be fixed. 
The bug reports are so messed up that the bugs described will never be fixed. In fact, they are almost three years old.

What I do not want to do is add more confusion. If they are duplicates, it is because they describe poorly and generically a bug (game crashes), when in fact there are two different bugs (game crashes when audio is enabled and/or when resolution is set higher than 640x480).
