Hi all,

thanks to Alex, now Processing/SEXTANTE bugtracker is
a subproject of QGIS. All Processing tickets should be visible
inside main QGIS tracker, but for submitting issue one should
use Processing tracker.

Please test. If this solution will not work fine for us we can always
restore previous state.
