I will try it again and record the errors I get and report them.

OK, I have got so used to Konqueror automatically logging me on when I
go to a site that I did not notice that when I clicked on the URL to get me
to the bug it had not logged me on.  Now I see the "add note" text box.

But this a feature request not a bug.  I also had received comments from
this list that suggested that this feature was not in even the latest version. 
You might not implement it for several releases and a number of Bug Trackers
have adopted the idea that there is no point in attaching a release to a 
feature request for exactly this reason.  But if this one does not have that
facility then so be it.
