So I looked at [2], clicked through to the Universal Debian Database
[3], selected Sort By "last modified", and clicked Search.  The very
first bug on the result [4] is #545911, which is already fixed.

This surprised me greatly, since I thought I was searching for bugs
"affecting" squeeze.  

I later noticed that among the list of filters is "marked as done"
which was not considered.  So the default search appears to be "bugs
that affected squeeze at some point in time", which is slightly
different from what I had first imagined ("bugs affecting squeeze

So, a tip for others: be sure to "ignore" bugs marked as done.
