[Opendnssec-user] rollover started automatically when ManualRollover set

I tried to decrease various values set in the kasp.xml file, most notably
validity default and denial, publish and retire safety, propagation delay
for the zone and the parent zone and TTLs. While that affected the key
state is some cases, it did not affect the ZSK in retire state which I want
to remove from the zone.

I also tried to force deletion of that key with ods-ksmutil key delete but
the action was rejected by the enforcerd since it considers the key to be
in use.

I believe it's possible to manually change the value of next transition for
that key in the database, but that I really consider last resort.
