Then it’s doing something different that I thought it does. I used it to
undo a „fixed in version 6.6.1-2“ which should not have been done in the
first place, and judging from the bts web page on 
it really un-marked the bug as fixed (instead of marking is as not
fixed, which I thought would be the “found” command).

If I really mis-understood it: What is the correct way of undoing a
wrongly marked as fixed version?
