Are you sure that works?

(debbugs-gnu-search "wterm" '((status . "open")) nil '("guix" "guix-patches"))

returns nothing

(debbugs-gnu-search "wterm" '((pending . "open")) nil '("guix" "guix-patches"))

returns nothing

(debbugs-gnu-search "wterm"  nil nil '("guix" "guix-patches"))

returns only closed bugs.  odd.

M-x debbugs-gnu-search RET "wterm" RET RET x

correctly returns bug 56965, which is an open bug.

What am I doing wrong?
