The search page is in one word 'unusable'. Far too many input fields, not 
enough comments, severly cluttered  and too heigh to fit on any screen.

Searching on bugs per version strikes me as very unneeded. I remember we only 
had 3 severity options, 2 status, no OS, 
What about severely stripping that page down; since it is the page new 
visitors will see first. A first impression I don't want to cripple anyone's 
poor brain with :)

Hihi; the "Give me a clue about how to use this form." at the bottom tells me 
enough :)

Darn that thing is ugly..
