Well, it's really marking that it's not actually fixed in version
6.6.1-2; I wrote it that way because the command is actually notfixed,
and because the way that sounds most "correct" (to me anyway):
"Removed any indication that bug was fixed in version 6.6.1-2"
doesn't fit the "Bug marked blah blah" meme.

Another option is Bug unmarked as fixed in version 6.6.1-2, but I'm
not sure if that's any clearer.

Don Armstrong

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired
signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are
not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is
not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers,
the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a
way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is
humanity hanging on a cross of iron.
 -- Dwight Eisenhower, April 16, 1953
