I believe that's done correctly.  While working on a new C parser I don't 
expect to be working on implementing my constant expressions formal models 
so I expect in due course the target milestone for this bug will be put 
back to 4.1, but it's quite proper for every regression bug, no matter how 
obscure or unlikely to be of importance to users, to have its target 
milestone set in the first instance to the next release after it 
regressed, and for it to be left to the RM to decide which bugs get their 
milestones set back.
