By default it only searches for open bugs; the bug is closed because
it has already been fixed in trunk.

I believe the bug occurs any time you try to export from a working
copy (regardless of what protocol you used to check the working copy
out with), and I believe the bug does not occur if you try to export
from a repository URL (again, regardless of the protocol). But I have
not tested every protocol.

I can't keep track of who wants copies and who doesn't. If you don't
want copies, you can change the Reply-To header of your outgoing
mails to be the list's address.
