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

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)
Reassigning bugs that I'm not actively working on to the default component owner
in order to try to make some sanity out of my personal buglist.  This doesn't
mean the bug isn't being dealt with, just that I'm not the one doing it.  If you
are dealing with this bug, please assign it to yourself.

This also applies to the "change several" link.
