The full text of the "if no matching revision.." option is:

-f	Force a head revision match if tag/date not found.

Which means you'll get the latest HEAD revision.  AFAIK there is no
option to get revisions from previous branches.

If "bugfix" was really branched from "maint_1" then I'd expect all the
files to be there anyway, though.
