That is not a bug but intentional behavior. If you execute the "Wire Frame "operator, you can change the settings in the F6 popup or in the Toolbar. You can disable the "Replace" option there, the unselected Geometry will then stay.

dingto: to my knowlage "replace" is also selection wise and means if you want to remove geometry that the wire frame was build on... just fire up 2.69 and give it a try

I can reproduce this problem. Note that there is the "Replace" option. If checked, in 2.69, it only replaced the face, but in 2.70, it also deletes unrelated vertices. This should not happen. Independent from the replace option, no vertex needs to be deleted at all. It only decides whether the existing face is to be deleted.

sorry dingto, you were faster. :)

Looks like its a regression indeed - too late to make it into 2.70 though, think this can be fixed for 2.71 (or 2.70a)
