I get the notification about new issues open in the bugtracker. If I
see an interesting "bug", I usually open a Firefox tab with it, to
monitor it, decide if I will work on it in the future, whatever.
When I have time to decide, I proceed. If I find the issue interesting
but don't have the time to work on it, or somebody else is taking care
of it, I just add myself to the nosy list, and close the tab.
The problem with this is that even if I reload the tab, flags are
usually stale and when I add myself to the nosy list, I revert flags
to the old value.

Preserving form data on reload is a browser feature.
The solution is either to reload with CTRL+F5 or opening the page again (this can also be done with CTRL+L, Enter). Both will update the form with the most recent data, discarding anything you might have changed/added.
The CTRL+L, Enter can also be used when Roundup displays a red bar about a conflict. In that case CTRL+F5 might resend the POST data and cause the conflict again. Opening the page on a new tab also works.
I don't think there's anything more Roundup should do. (Maybe something can be done, but I'm not sure it's worth to fix this specific "problem".)
