We don't always announce bugfixes.  If you submitted a patch, you can
see if the patch was applied via anonymous CVS access to the Emacs
development sources (go to http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/emacs and
follow the link to "CVS").  You can also download and build the
current CVS version, and see if the bug is still there.  Finally, you
can ask here (but please provide the necessary details about the
original bug report, so that we could find it in the records).
