I've been fixing a couple tidbits here and there.  In my CVS commit
message I make sure I have, on a separate line (and sometimes this will
be the whole of the message if the bug is self-explanatory):

  Fix bug #123456

It probably doesn't matter what text people use, but having a
number/pound sign "#" before the bug is a good thing.  I've seen people
do some cool automagical things with CVS commit messages and Perl, and
having a marker for the bug number definitely helps.
