If you don't mind it being closed source, I would highly recommend  
Jira from Atlassian.  First, it's an excellent bug tracking system  
and second, Atlassian (the company that makes Jira and it's wiki  
companion Confluence) provides free hosted services for some open  
source projects.  I took them up on the offer for Mailman's wiki (see  
wiki.list.org) and am in the process of transitioning our bug  
tracking system from SourceForge to Jira (bugs.list.org).  My main  
hang up is/was just extracting the data from SF and converting it for  
import into Jira -- but you won't have that problem because you're  
starting from scratch. ;)

Oh, and while the /systems/ are closed, your data is not, so you can  
always extract it if you wanted to move again.

If you want, contact me off-list and I'll see if I can dig up the  
Atlassian contact information.
