I am not changing any other fields, so no idea why it is claiming I am trying to change the
"Ever confirmed" field. I cannot even see where that field is. Pressing Back and trying again
does not help - it does the same thing. I also tried reloading the page in case I had changed
something which wasn't reset just by going back.

This is maybe a problem from the migration IssuZilla to Kenai Bugzilla, 
and not from Kenai BZ to Apache BZ. Did, you have had CANCONFIRM-rights 
at the old Issuezilla?

Anyway, it seems to be a permission problem. This can only solve a BZ 
Admin. I heve no BZ Admin rights. And bevor we change this rights, we 
schould discuss, how we will handle the BZ rights at Apache.
