pyrzak, I think that when "Reset Assignee/QA contact to default" is checked, the assignee/QA contact text field should be disabled, and only become editable when the checkbox is unchecked. This would fix this problem I think. What do you think?

The only problem with this is sometimes the checkbox gets checked without the user noticing it (when you change component) and then they might not realize it. I think the right thing to do is put a check on the back end to ignore the field if that checkbox is checked. So I would think the right fix is to fix it in process_bug.cgi not in the UI. But disabling the checkbox might be an easier fix.
Disabling the checkbox?? How do you reset the default assignee then?
oh, sorry i meant disabling the textbox.
Note however that we've had this behavior for many years now and nobody has before filed a bug (meaning that no significant part of the userbase has run into the problem) so it's not a very high-priority issue.
