I know it's been some years since you subimtted this bug report, but can
you explain this a bit better?

Probably there is a misunderstanding somewhere, it's not clear to me how
you can run a restore job on a different volume? I mean, if bacula wants
to read the data from tape X, it won't read some other data from tape Y?

And as I understand it, the window with the list of tapes(volumes) is
only for information which tapes will be needed during restore, not to
select which ones are to be used?
