All notfixed does is remove the indication that a bug is fixed in a
particular version; if you want to also reopen the bug, you want
found, which will also remove the indication that a bug is fixed in a
particular version as a side effect.
The documentation in the BTS is probably a bit more confusing than it
should be about notfixed though.
Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing, after they
have exhausted all other possibilities.
