It's also limited by the fact that you can't specify any other search
constraints (like assignee or current state).  If you search for a term
which turns up frequently, you'll get dozens of hits, most of which will be
useless because the bug or patch has already been closed.

Because of this, I often find it easier to use the browse function using
various criteria to limit its scope.
