How to handle false duplicates

Asked by Unai Uribarri

I want to mark the mplayer bug #104630 as a duplicate of #85550, but I can't since #85550 was marked as a duplicate of #74282. But this is wrong, they seem similar but they are clearly different.
I can't find a way to remove the duplicate mark between #85550 and #74282 nor any way to force the duplication mark between #104630 and #85550. How can I proceed?

Bug 85550 has been unmarked as a duplicate.

You should be able to easily re-arrange duplicate status:

1. to remove a duplicate marking, select the "Mark as a duplicate" link on the left side of the bug text, and clear the bug number on the resulting page;

2. to re-assign a bug as a duplicate of a different bug, doas in (1) above, and replace the existing bug number by the desired bug number.

Please try it, and report back the results.
