That version number is the version that the bug was filed against, not  
the version it is fixed in.

Correct, the bug is not fixed in Safari 3.2.

The version number field of the bug report indicates the version  
number that the originator observed the bug in.  The SVN revision  
number (eg, r32664) given in the comments indicates which revision of  
the WebKit trunk contains the fix.  There's no particularly easy way  
to determine whether or not a bug was fixed in a given release of  
Safari.  If you're patient, you can look through the Subversion  
repository and see which changes were made on the branches that a  
given release was made from.
