Heck, IMHO you should do it differently *this* time. :-)
Some reasons: (1) It's nice from a software engineering
perspective to have a record of bugs found and fixed.
Metrics can be useful, but must be driven by data.  (2) It
lets people know that something has changed in this area.
Can be really helpful in tracking down other bugs for those
who don't religiously follow the email list and the commit
logs.  (3) You may need to reopen the bug if you dorked
something.  The record gets weird at that point if you don't
have a bug already there to reopen.

Best would be to finish filing the bug report before you
start investigating the bug. :-)
