No permission to see Ubuntu bugs?

So I'm looking at the release notes for Ubuntu 9.10 and am interested in the hibernation issue. Naturally I follow the link to the bug report.

First I need to log in to launchpad. That's weird, since when do I need to log in simply to view bugs? But after logging in I see this:

Not allowed here

Sorry, you don't have permission to access this page.

You are logged in as Floris Bruynooghe.

Since when is Ubuntu hiding bugs? Sure security bugs might need to be hidden for a while but you could be more descriptive about that. And surely you shouldn't be linking to such bugs?

Just weird.
