Description

5 years ago
1. On bug 749894, I added bug 836869 to the "Blocks" list (and saved successfully).
2. I then tried to move it to the "Depends" list by:
- Clicking on "Edit" (just to the right of the "Blocks" list), which made both "Blocks" and "Depends" fields editable.
- I deleted 836869 from the Blocks list (which had few items), and put it (at the currently empty) Depends list.

Expected result:
- Bug 749894 depends on 836869, and doesn't block it.

Actual result:
- I got the error message: "The following bug(s) would appear on both the "depends on" and "blocks" parts of the dependency tree if these changes are committed: 836869 822490. This would create a circular dependency, which is not allowed."

Hmm.. this seems like a valid error message. 836869 already implicitly blocks 749894 via 822490, so it won't fit the Depends list.

RESOLVED INVALID?
