version field


is there any reason why the version field is defaulted to the previously used value when entering a new bug?

eg - If I enter a bug for product A, version 3.02 and then I enter a bug for product B, the version field on the bug entry page still has 3.02.

I'm finding bogus version numbers being entered because some people forget to clear the field if the version number doesn't apply.

It just remembers what you typed in there the last time you entered it.  It's not a project specific setting.

... and the reasoning is that usually testers are working with the same version, entering multiple bugs, for a period of time.
