I don't think this is an existing feature. JOSM pre-fills using the
comment you last used, so that might be what you saw. But the Task
Manager does _not_ automatically pass a "suggested changeset comment"
to JOSM so there's no current mechanism. I've just updated to v6388 to
confirm current behaviour...
