[Samba] Samba bugzilla search terms not functional

I tried to search for a term "deadlink" in Samba bugzilla system at
"Entere a bug# or some search terms"
I consider the word "deadlink" to be a search term. Also the [Help]
states that "Bugzilla QuickSearch. Type in one or more words
(or word fragments) to search for". The string "deadlink" is certainly a word.

However after pressing 'show', I got to URL
Whis stated in a big red box:
"The bug number is invalid. If you are trying to use QuickSearch, you need to
enable JavaScript in your browser. To help us fix this limitation, look here".

I have web browser Links-2.1pre14 and the Javascript is enabled:
[X] Enable javascript.

It looks like the Bugzilla search mechanism requires something more that
an enabled javascript. Probably it has special requirements on the
properties of JavaScript implementation. What I suggest:

1) Determine what are the specification of Bugzilla system in regards
of requirement on Javascript implementation 
2) Replace the text "you need to enable JavaScript in your browser" with
"you have to enable JavaScript in your browser and the implementation
on JavaScript in your browser has to
comply with standard XXX of JavaScript".
