Scheduled vs. Actual issue time
Redmine is are perfect instrument for developers but when I try to use it in our company I meet that our project managers needs additional functions. Most important of them - ability to view real project progress compared to planned one. Here should be two independent date pairs to implement this - start/due dates for planned issue bounds and started/ended dates for actual. Started and ended dates can be set automaticly when issue status changes New->AnythingElse and NotClosedStatus->ClosedStatus respectively.
Additionally second bar (optionally) should be added to Gantt chart. This may look like here:

I was almost going to file this issue as well.
Now, as the Redmine has transformed from merely being a bug trackers to a full fledge software project mangement tool. It is important to note that while we can note actual start and due date, formal planning requires that every tasks/plan has estimated or scheduled start-end dates and then they are calibrated for deviations against actual start-end dates.
I think having distinct scheduled vs. actual start-end dates is significantly welcome.
