This is just a usability/feature request...

The link at the bottom of an issue thread used to delete that thread can be confused with a link to delete the last post in the thread. When you click the delete link, the alert just says, "Are you sure?". If the user thinks that he/she is deleting the last post they will click yes and end up deleting the whole issue, and any sub-issues (we had this happen).

I would like to see a more descriptive error message here: "Are you sure you want to delete the entire issue? This will also delete any sub-issues." (or something to that effect.)

Sorry about that. I thought we were running the most up to date version. Apparently not. ;-)

Thanks for the great work!

Well, 1.2.0 has not been released yet, so you may be actually running the most up to date version =)
