[PD] sourceforge bug tracking and Vanilla PD

I've just experimented a bug about the [keyup] object not working 
correctly under Windows, in PD Vanilla 0.42-4

So I've gone to the Bug Tracker and done a search.
Guess what? Not only have I found that I already reported this bug 
myself almost 2 years ago (1728414), but that THE BUG REPORT IS CLOSED 
and the last comment posted by the bugfix asignee says:

This is fixed by patch #1704511 and included in branches/pd-extended/0.40

I think something's gone wrong, as the bug in Pd Vanilla 0.42-4 is still 

Is it correct to CLOSE a bug report before the fix reaches PD Vanilla? 
(we're talking about a basic object included in the vanilla distribution)
Is it tracked somewhere else (in the patchtracker for example) so that 
one day, according to priorities, the fix will be included in PD 
Vanilla? Or does the fact that the bug ticket is closed mean that it 
won't probably ever get through to PD Vanilla?

Because in the latter case I think it was an error to set the bug report 
as "CLOSED".

By the way the very same thing happens with bug #1728405 about [keyname]
