Ah, what you said earlier was ambiguous, in that it didn't make it clear
that you'd used quotes in your search arguments.  I read the quotes you 
had just as ordinary ones in your description of the problem.

There's no /arbitrary/ header search described there.  It's one of 
the pages I read before I replied.

The important thing is that it's something you can do for yourself
that goes some way to solve what only you seem to see as a problem.

You may know... but I bet you find in a few years you can't remember 
the exact text of very bug report you've ever made.  And, personally. 
I prefer to have my own copies of things that might not be available 
online when I later want to read them.

If they can be deleted in CM with its filtering, is there really a 
problem?  (Leaving aside seeing them on your phone.)

Jeremy Nicoll - my opinions are my own.
