Message-ID search for lists.debian.org works properly again

Hi all,

Sometimes you have a message-id of a mail that got sent to a Debian
list, and you'd like to know what the URL is on the official web
archives. For example, you want to post an url somewhere and only have
the message-id in your mailbox, or you want to find out the link to a
post you just made, or someone else gave you a message-id for a post,
and you want to use the web archives. For this reason, a message-id
search form had been created.

You can find it at http://lists.debian.org/msgid-search/ 

Two bugs in this were fixed today:
- the fancy short URLs didn't work, nor did the extra options. This is
  now fixed.
- In some cornercases, wrong links were generated. This was because of a
  wrong assumption about mhonarc's algorithm, now the search uses the
  mhonarc database itself so should always be correct.

Please let me know of any feature requests and/or bug reports.
