FULLTEXT_BUGLIST_LIMIT currently limits full text searches to 200 rows This should be configurable either as a parameter or with an override in db modules. If there is concern about crushing a server then a note might be included next to the parameter indicating that changing the parameter could have adverse effects in environment with limited hardware.
Oh, it's not really a concern about DB hardware, as much as I think it was a desire to limit the number of rows returned by simple search. It may have been partly related to improving return speed of searches, though.
For simple search in actually made sense, just return the first x to give the user possibles. For a normal search however, I at least, want all possible returns, at least the option of anyhow. Buglist.cgi is hardcoded to limit based on the constants if the query is detected as a fulltext search.
