Bug in Archive Searches

I've notified WRI several times that searches at pages like

http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2005/Mar/

under "Search the Archive" do not return complete results. For instance, searching for "Bug in Import" doesn't find the recent thread on that subject. There are over 2 dozen messages on that very page, but none of them show up in the search results.

In response, I've been thanked for making a "suggestion" and given this advice:

I was getting used to the fact that Help isn't searchable, but...

Now I'm to believe text searches in the archive are too hard, as well?
