Except it _will_ appear if you enter the number in the web interface.

You can also _select_ Dead as a status option in search, but it's a bogus

shouldn't be visible, or it should work.

I agree with that.  I'm working on a spamfiltering tool to kill spam
tickets (based on the autoresponse bounce) and I did a search and noticed
'hey, wait a sec...."
