Description

Using a 5.0 on a Macintosh to bring up my bug list I am missing three bugs that
are normally there using 4.x or 5.0 on Windows.  This is very strange since I
would guess that the client has very little to do with the query.  The URL is:
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&email1=hangas&emailtype1=substring&emailassigned_to1=1&email2=&emailtype2=substring&emailreporter2=1&changedin=&chfieldfrom=&chfieldto=Now&chfieldvalue=&short_d&order=bugs.target_milestone
and it currently shows me 80 bugs on 4.7 Mac and 5.0 Windows, but only 77 bugs
on 5.0 Mac.  As a dogfood user I am concerned about this.  I repeated this same
problem with sspitzer replacing my name in the query, in this case one bug was
missing.  I repeated this problem on pmock's Mac and Windows builds of 5.0.

I can't figure this out at all. cc'ing terry to see if he knows what could be
happening on the bugzilla server side.

Giving to pollmann, to see if he has any ideas, or knows where this bug might
belong.

missing?

They are all imported from bugzilla, probably has something to do with it

s/bugzilla/bugsplat/ ?  Could this have to do with requiring a login first so
that the appropriate cookie gets set?

Yes.  That's the problem.  In bugspat, if a bug is marked 'Only people in the
"Netscape Confidential" group can see this bug', and you are not logged in, you
won't see it in queries.  To see such bugs, all you need to do is log in.

To log in, try to visit one of the restricted bugs:
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5648

You'll get:
Permission denied.
blah blah blah _log in_.

Click on the _log in_ link.

Enter your bugzilla username and password.

Run the query again.

The reason that this worked on Win for you is that you logged in on that machine
before (possibly even that build) and had a cookies.txt file lying around that
already had your email/password in it.  Marking this bug invalid.
