basically, I just entered * into the topbar search box.

I just tried this on foswiki.org, no crash. worked fine. The display was corrupted a bit I think due to a task summary that added some html.

What was the crash? If it was a 500, could it possibly be because the fcgi search ran too long and timed out the fcgi process.

When I click on that link, I get a WebSearch page with only

Could not perform search. Error was: Quantifier follows nothing in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/(\b.{0,30}\b)\b((?i:* <-- HERE ))\b(\b.{0,30}\b)/

which internally is a crash - the browser output is our boilerplate, but that is busted.

I have a test and a fix for this, but i need to play with it some more
