The best way to deal with that, IMO, would be for the bugmail to include 
a note like "You have voted for this bug" when the bug is resolved.  If 
it were done by an alert when you log in, either it would lose its 
effect or you would have to waste time checking the list to see whether 
it's just the same bug(s) that you've deliberately left your vote on as
