    It's a fairly standard term. Basically, it means that some feature
    (interpreted broadly, e.g. "compiles this piece of code correctly")
    worked in version X but fails to do so due to a bug (as opposed to a
    feature change or removal) in version Y, where Y>X. Most often, the first
    step of fixing the problem is increasing X or decreasing Y successively so
    that X==Y-1.

    You're welcome.
