Looking for guidance on "Fix for"

I am using "Fix for" to prioritise bugs.

Our procedure is: When a bug is first entered it is assigned to the next planned release. After consideration it may be deferred to a later release.

The effect is that I can gauge the health of a project with a filter that specifies the project and Fix for, sorting by  Status and Assigned to.

My problem is the Fix for = Undecided bugs that keep appearing and which I miss. I have considered changing the name to "Current release target" and using this for all new bugs.

Have you already solved this? Do you use something better?

If most of your bugz need to be "handled" before they get in their correct spot, a good way to handle this is to create a "New Bugz" account and have it as the project admin.  That way new bugz go to that account and when they leave that account and get assigned to their person, you always set the fix for.
