Looks to me like more issues have been filed lately that ignore
the buddy system: #3274, #3275, #3276, #3277, and the one
quoted above (#3278).

Most of these were filed by different people.

I wonder why. My best guess is that it may have to do with the fact
that as of r31665, index.html links to issue-tracker.html#find
instead of just issue-tracker.html.

I don't know about you, but for me (in firefox 3), this results
in the browser not showing the big red text at the start of the
yellow box at all. Instead, a red frame around the "search" form
is shown, and the browser scrolls down the page so that the upper
edge of the red frame is at the top of the window. The big red
text is then out of view, and the focus of the page is on the
search form, which I would expect many people chose to ignore
(because they assume their problem is unique anyway).

Focus on the search form does not seem half as alerting as the red text.
Do people ignore the buddy system because of this?

For convinience, here are links to see the difference yourself:

Good: http://subversion.tigris.org/issue-tracker.html
Bad: http://subversion.tigris.org/issue-tracker.html#find
