Anyone who takes time to file a new bug is adding some value to the
project.  It may be more or less valuable, but we shouldn't give the
impression that we don't want to hear about the problem.

Ideally, yes.  But not everyone can do it.  It's better to have 10
reports for already fixed bugs and one for a bug that still exists than
to have neither of them.

If you have an example where time was wasted as a result of the
availability of the older versions in the bug tracker, I may reconsider.

I generally assume the bug reporters to be intelligent persons who can
make there own judgment how to file a bug.
