I don't think so, Mats.
Bugs will stay in the system forever.
Hopefully they will make it to the fixed and even verified state
Ideally a test will be written against each defect, so that deja vu
bugs will stay a lesser chance to silently sneak in.
If they do, the bug can just be re-opened again.
Bug history is another great feature of a good defect tracking system.
