I guess it might have been Qt, which has also been upgraded on Debian unstable
and being C++ is part of the GCC 4.0 ABI transition.

I could not find anywhere on the bug where there was a button or a text
area for me to add such a notes.

I am not asking for it to be added to an old version.  That is the version I
happen to be running, not the version I would ask for it to be added to.  I am
quite happy to wait for the new feature whenever it appears, it would just
make my life even better if I had it.  

Are you saying that when submitting a feature request rather than reporting
the actual version we are running you want the latest version available 
selected?  If so it might be an idea to add a note to that effect to the page
or to remove the version number from the page when requesting a feature
as it is obviously redundant.
