It doesn't because as I explained subject:"Bug" gives the exact same
result, i.e. it catches even the current thread (which it would delete
if one would relying on it). IOW that would catch everything that
contains the word "bug" in subject disregarding the extra symbols in
the "exact search" string.

There is some limited support only:

While that is possible the need for such gym only proves that the
messaging system needs improvement.

Because I know what I have already said in the bug report + I can
always check it on the bugzilla itself. So there is no need to have
that same info 2 more times (or even 1). I delete these email messages
manually but I would prefer not to have to do it. But as far as I
understand there are no plans to change anything on the sender's side.
So if that is final perhaps there isn't anything more to say.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions.
