Furthermore, the user has to do something different to find out that something is a common user error.
I think a bug tracking system (or, more generally, a bug handling process) is a horrible way to deal with common user errors. I'd rather see effort put into fixing the product design and/or user documentation than providing a way in the bug reporting process for a user to find out that what appears to be a bug really isn't.
For example, I've found that simply producing quality error messages goes a long way toward that.
