Strange, both queries give me 2781 bugs now.

At least 38273 is include in both queries.

Heh, I tried to add the condition:

"Status"           "string contains"     "UNCONFIRMED"  OR
"Creation Date"    "changed before"      "2011-10-16"

It should ignore bugs in the state "NEW" that were created after

Heh, I tried to modify the query from the wiki page
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugTriage. I realized that I forgot
to check for status "PLEASETEST", so I tried to add:

"Status"           "string contains"     "UNCONFIRMED"  OR
"Status"           "string contains"     "PLEASETEST"   OR
"Creation Date"    "changed before"      "2011-10-16"

I played also with "is equal to" and "contains the string (exact case)"
Then bugzilla got mad and showed only bugs with the status "UNCONFIRMED"

I think that it does not make sense.

I think that there is either a bug in bugzilla and condition processing.

Or there is a problem with caches. I quess that bugzilla caches some
queries and it reuses the cache a wrong way. In some cases, your
modifications in a query might be ignored.

I am a bit lost as well. Maybe, it is better to wait until morning and
hope that the broken caches will get lost.
