Related Cases and "Bug"

I LOVE the new "Related Cases" feature that scans the body of the bug and picks out the instances where I've written "Case XXXX".

This feature doesn't seem to pick up on the bug numbers if I use the "Bug XXXX" format.

Is this by design?  Or a bug?

Thanks,
Dave

Clarification:

It DOES appear that if I include:

Bug 1234

in the body of bug 2345, I see the following:

In the header of bug 1234, I see Related Cases: 2345
In the header of bug 2345, I do not see the Related Cases: area

However, if I include:

Case 1234

in the body of bug 2345, I see the following:

In the header of bug 1234, I see Related Cases: 2345
In the header of bug 2345, I see Related Cases: 1234

So, it looks like the two-way link only works with "Case" as opposed to "bug."

Thanks,
 Dave

Oh, heck.  I totally screwed myself up.

Now I see what's happening. It only does it one-way. I was confused because in one case, I had put the cross-reference into the body of both bugs.

Please disregard.

It does it one way because you actually typing the bug number in the other case creates the other link.

Case 1
  I type in the body: see case 2 <-- turns into link to case 2

Case 2
  Header has link to case 1.

So now both bugs are crosslinked!
