I noticed a small problem in's cgi search script.

I sadly don't have time to troubleshoot it further now,
so I'll just make a note of it.

If one goes to each mailing list's HTML archive page,
there's a search box, e.g.:

Entering a term (e.g. "netbsd") and clicking "search"
results in the following URL, and works fine:

The first hint of a problem is that at the top of the
search result page it says:
 "This index contains 0 documents and 0 keywords.".

If, while on the same search result page, you click "search" again (with the same search term already in the input box,
there will be *zero* results, and the message will say:
  "References: [ (can't open the index) ]"
The resulting URL is:

The difference between the two URLs is the missing "idxname=coreutils"
CGI parameter.


I'm not sure what changed or when (this certainly used to work until recently).

If this rings any bells to savannah developers, let me know.
