When a checked out item is converted to LOST status and goes on to the borrower's fine account with a replacement cost, and that lost item is subsequently returned and checked in, Koha now automatically issues a credit for the lost item in the amount of the replacement cost so that the patron is not charged for a lost item that's returned. However, the item status doesn't change to Available. It remains Lost. I'm thinking that once the item is returned, the Lost status should come off.
Patron Fine Record shows item is no longer Lost, replacement cost is credited...

Requesting higher severity on this item as we are moving towards using longoverdues.pl cron script to trigger LOST status changes on patron accounts.

This bug was previously known as _bug_ 3265 at http://bugs.koha.org/cgi-bin/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=3265
Actual time not defined. Setting to 0.0
This is still an issue in HEAD as of 5/27/2010.
The status is changed, but not changed to available. The status field for the item is empty.
Screenshots to follow.
Is the patch for Bug 3781 relevent to this bug? 3781 looks like a duplicate of this one.

This appears to be fixed. I just checked out a book, marked it lost, fines were applied; I returned the book, it was marked not lost, status available, and taken off of my account. This seems like perfect behavior to me.
Closing with always the option to reopen.
