Yes. But note: Every query you did can be named, saved and used again
later, you also can put it in your personal footer.

If you are for example interested in all Konqueror bugs that where
changed between christmas and new year 2001 or whatever, fiddle around
until you have the query and save it. Very cool. Another quite cool
feature: If you have a query that does not yet exactly what it should,
there is an 'edit this query' link at the bottom of the buglist, that
reloads the query page. Hitting 'back' to the query page  is sometime wired
because of java script code that sorts Products/Components etc.
