It lately seems that for pure "task-oriented" trouble ticket system
people seem to use RT. Haven't used it myself much, but it seems to
have good properties wrt handling updates directly via email (so you
can avoid web UIs).

What *I* miss from Trac and most bugtrackers is the ability to interop
with other systems. Malone (launchpad's bugtracker) seems to get that
right. In a bug entry / ticket you can put a link to an external bug
in someone else's bugtracker, and Malone keeps track of it, and mostly
does the right thing. So Ubuntu can relate their bugs to - for example
- kernel bugs recorded in bugzilla.kernel.org.

But that's a disgression. I'm not sure how well Malone fits your usage
patterns, or how stable it is.
