I added two new categories to the categories file, but
neglected to run `mkcat`. Then I tried to move an existing
report to a new category with gnatsweb. gnatsweb gave a nice
error message about a missing dir, so I remembered and
ran `mkcat`. Then I tried to re-update the bug report,
and it failed with "couldn't find PR ..." Looking in the
directoty I found that the bug had been moved to bug.old, but
not moved back. Better than losing the info, but not great.
add a cat to categories file
don't run mkcat
chage an existing report to new report.
notice the report is "missing"
