We have this section of the wiki page for 4.2:

It does say "Most Annoying Bugs," so I wouldn't expect it to be
entirely inclusive of all bugs open against 4.2, but at least in this
case it sounds like this problem should be on the mab4.2 list.

Bigger-picture, I'm now wondering if we can programmatically determine
which documented bugs still affect the latest Still or Fresh release.

(Thinking out loud:
- If a bug is still open, then it definitely could affect any builds.
- If the bug is resolved, "target:X.y.z" whiteboard tags that are
newer than the current release could indicate the bug affects that
- Specific repro tests are buried in comments, and aren't structured
enough (yet) for us to scrape in a script.
