Look at the history - it was resolved as Won't Fix on 5/19/2006, half a year before I joined the VC team. I had to find the bug in our old, old, old bug database (we've had separate databases for VC8, VC9, VC10, and VC11), using an old program (our internal Product Studio; now we use Team Foundation Server), just to reply to the bug, as a courtesy to anyone stumbling upon it. I didn't know if I could mess with the resolution state (yes, it should be marked as Fixed), so I left it as is.
I can't fix the past. I can fix only the future.
