How do I clear the "flagged posts" flag?

I visited my installation and deleted 3 spammy posts. I then noticed that someone had flagged one of them and it is appearing behind the exclamation/warning icon in the header. It is showing me one of the messages that I have already deleted and selecting the message and clicking the "delete post" button does nothing. How do I dismiss the flagged notice?

This is a bug that we'll fix soon, also there is a similar one for closed questions. We do need to implement some features to prevent spam.

This was fixed in the repository, will be available in 0.7.44, along with ability to vote and comment on closed questions.

So we have this bug in 0.7.49. 7 flagged posts - is there a way to clear these? I recall 2 questions in the queue that we rejected leaving us with the 7 flags and no way of clearing them. I suspect there were 9 edits across the 2 questions and once the questions were gone, the related flags were not removed...seems like the code should do that...?
