Some bugs are specific to a particular version, or (as Julian points
out) to a particular OS. Also, Issuezilla doesn't only contain defects,
it also contains tasks, and those are even more often version-specific.

Certainly, the version (and OS and platform) fields should be reviewed
and changed where necessary, but blindly changing /everything/ is a mistake.
