The query is:answer locked:no returns locked answers (e.g. What is your most productive shortcut with Vim?) despite the "locked:no" option.

    This applies to all historically locked questions. The "locked" status is only on the question despite its effect being on all the answers as well.

  • But it doesn't apply to "normally" locked questions, apparently -- bobince's famous answer doesn't show up in my results.

    That's because bobince's answer has a lock on it specifically. There's a normal lock both on the question and on the answer.

    Sounds like implementation details leaking into the UI. If I can't vote on/edit/comment on/etc an answer then it should be considered locked for purposes of the "locked:" search operator, regardless of whether or not it also has an extra special double-lock.
