Show as buglist in showdependencytree.cgi breaks for very large trees. The issue is that we supply the bugids via a GET, which is limited in length. It's funny because clicking on the link makes the brower throb for a bit and then give up silently. Anyway, the proper fix is to either: - Change the link to a button and supply the bugids as part of a <form> which is POSTED. - Use a special argument to buglist.cgi that makes it look up the dependent/blocker bugids based on a single bug. This has the disadvantage of duplicating the work already done searching for dependencies, but it allows us to offer a direct "view dependency list" link without requiring one to go through the dependency tree first. I'm inclined to go with the simpler solution.
Seems that this bug still prevails in version 2.18 (our current version)
