I actually joined this list for two reasons, to follow up to an age old
problem that resurfaced on my machine while building 1.1.2 and to revive
this discussion.

You mean to tell me that you consider it a Good Idea(tm) to purposefully
allow a broken search form to live on tigris.org? Thankfully, I thought

otherwise I never would have found the solution to my problem.

Ooooo, the pages are "servlet-generated." Sounds pretty scary to me. I
have this GREAT mental picture of out.println("<html>\n...); in
