you'll see from the history field that your original bug report came 
into the Java Incidents project : (JI-9006934) Shortly after that, it 
got moved to the JDK project. You bug ID reference was the original ID. 
When the issue is triaged and moved, it gets mapped to a new ID 

As a tip for those without a bugs.openjdk login, you can search for your 
original ID and see if it's been mapped to a new bug via the search 
function. Search for "JI-9006934". JIRA will map a JI report to the new 
JDK bug if it's been transferred across to the JDK project.

The process of how webbug submissions work is bound to be source of 
confusion for many. It would be good if we can get it documented for 
all. Anyone with login access [1] will probably log bugs directly in the 
JDK project now.
