It is correct. Your search is not related to the *submitter*
'address@hidden', but to the *author*.

Your search returns bugs, which

- contain a message with the word 'url-retrieve-synchronously', AND
- have the author 'address@hidden' of this message.

This is how the debbugs search works. It is message oriented, and not
bug oriented. The presentation as a bug is a convenient layer of
debbugs-gnu.el. Maybe it could also highlight the respective message(s)
in the gnus/rmail summary, but this is not implemented.

Best regards, Michael.
