Patch to prevent blocked issues from being closed
I noticed issue #1740 and decided to try to contribute by coming up with a patch. My proposed solution is that if an issue is blocked by another issue, then the available statuses should only include statuses that are NOT closed statuses (e.g. New, Assigned, Resolved, Feedback). If the issue is NOT blocked by another issue, then closed statuses (e.g. Closed, Rejected) will also appear in the drop down list.
The patch also includes updates for unit tests and fixtures.

(this is a question for the Redmine team)
How come this patch was not integrated in the latest release?
I mean: why did you guys offered the feature of marking an issue as blocked, if it isn't actually?
Software should be robust as a German car, and fancy as an Italian one. No offense, but advertising a feature that does not work but looks well - this is a French car.
