If I attempt to use the "change several bugs at once" feature to update status
and or assignee fields, bugzilla thinks that I've not changed anything.

This feature only seems to work if a comment is provided.

Hi Don,

Some changes to several bugs require an explanation that you have to include in
a comment box for the change to occur. And you can see that written in the
"change several bugs at once" page as the following:
To change multiple bugs:

   1. Check the bugs you want to change above.
   2. Make your changes in the form fields below. If the change you are making
requires an explanation, include it in the comments box.
   3. Click the Commit button.

So the feature works fine, I think we need to maybe change the error message
that you get saying that no bugs were changed to tell you that you need to
include a comment to make the change happen. I think it is a bit confusing how
it is now.

This is a known issue with the multi bug change interface. There is a bug in the
process_bug.cgi code when dealing with multiple bugs where certain actions do
not register as a change being made and you get the error message. A workaround
until a fix is found is to simply add a comment stating your change a long with
the assignment changes, etc. wyou were trying to make, and it will process

Sorry for the inconvenience.

This should now be fixed in the latest updated as of today. Please reopen this
bug if this is still broken.
