This query returns no hits (a closed bug I was cc:ed on and neil had commented on)

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?long_desc_type=substring&long_desc=parkway&bug_status=RESOLVED&emailcc1=1&emailtype1=exact&email1=danm%40netscape.com

while this one returns four (search for neil instead of parkway)

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?long_desc_type=substring&long_desc=neil&bug_status=RESOLVED&emailcc1=1&emailtype1=exact&email1=danm%40netscape.com

It seems to me that bug 195888, for instance, should have turned up both times.
None of the comments actually contain the string 'parkway'. the person who
didn't the commenting isn't included in the comment text itsself.

Not to mention there's a (presumably) more efficient way to search for a
commenter, anyway. All four "neil" bugs mention neil in the comments. Pilot
error. Thanks, Bradley.
