That's quite simple: the version is updated in a bug report if it has
not been fixed in the previous one, so the version in which it is
fixed is the next higher to the version in the bug header.
Example: if a bug header says 4.4.0, the bug has been last reported in
the version 4.4.0, if it is marked as fixed this fix should appear in

Of course for those compiling from SVN it is fixed in their next
update, for those using a distribution in will be in the next version
shipped by the distribution.
