[Development] Gerrit Bot closing reopened Bugs?

Hi *,

imagine the following situation:
1. Bug in 5.13 is reported
2. Patch with "Fixes: " is merged to 5.13 branch
3. Gerrit Bot closes the report with "Fix Version 5.13".
4. Reporter tests 5.13 branch, fix failed, reopens report
5. Patch is merged to dev branch
6. Gerrit Bot finds the patch in dev branch

What will the Gerrit do now? Will it close the reopened bug report 
again? I'm asking because this seems to have happened in
(with Creator's branches 4.9 and master)

The Gerrit Bot should not close bug reports which were reopened unless 
there is another patch. If this really happened as I suspect here, could 
someone please fix it?
