(This may actually belong in Other Issues.)

If I try and add myself to the CC list of a bug which depends on a bug that I am
not authorized to access (e.g. bug 148522 which depends on bug 148520), I get an
error saying "You are not authorized to access bug #148520." (or whatever the
number of the restricted bug is).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Got to bug 148522.
2. Try to add yourself to the CC list.

Expected results:
Get added to the CC list.

Actual results:
The following error appears: "You are not authorized to access bug #148520."
(unless you are actually authorised to access bug 148520 in which case it
presumably works).

I tried adding myself to the CC list of two bugs to test this: bug 148522 (which
depends on bug 148520) and bug 143047 (which depends on bug 125583) - I'm
already on the CC list of the latter bug but I tried adding myself again and got
the error. I assume that this issue would also prevent me from making other
changes to a bug which depends on a restricted bug (though for obvious reasons
I'm reluctant to experiment with this).

I presume this bug was introduced in the upgrade to 2.17.
This would probably be because we try to resolve dependency aliases with the
validation functions....

bbaetz, justdave, myk: can you remember who made this change? I would try and
track it down, but it strikes me that whoever did it would find it really easy
to fix.

I'm guessing that myk did it as part of the alias patch - I don't think that
this is in CVS (although I have't tested)
