I have to say this is a serious issue.

When filing a bug report without being logged in, and missing filling the anti-spam number, one gets to a page that says

"You're not logged in and you didn't enter the magic anti-spam number, please go back!"

But on going back, the whole form of the bug report is blank, i.e. the text that the user has taken the time to write to explain the bug and how to reproduce it etc. has been lost. A user would either just forget about trying to file a bug (and thus the bug will stay), or at best be very angry when he writes his text again (and thus the discussion will be difficult). In either case, this is a very big loss for free software.
