why does a search by name and search by bbox not find the same point?

If you look at the results of this URL:

You will find 4 results .. the one I am interested in is the following:
GOV-id = object_189823
name = Schwenkfeld, Makowice
Lat/Lon = 50.825,16.545


This bbox search returns nothing:

These points are a proper bbox around the Lat/Lon point above..right?
Upper-Left ("NorthWest") = (50.828379,16.536922)
Lower-Right ("SouthEast") = (50.821922,16.554103)

Why does URL #2 not return that point that URL #1 does? Am I doing something wrong with my bounding box search?

I am not looking for a particular place. I am asking a technical question of why the search by bounding box does not return a placename that I find when I do a search by name?

Am I doing my search by Lat/Lon bounding box incorrectly?
