I tried now for gdb, and it points me to:
which is the exact same location of where the /distrib/packages.html
points me after submitting the form (with all these options the same).

So, it is the searching system that fails. I am CC:ing this to debian-www
so that the webmasters can know about the problem.

BTW it is possible too that it fails because of incorrect Packages files from
where the web pages information is read, but not in gdb's case, because
http://www.debian.org/Packages/unstable/devel/gdb.html exists (I didn't
check the actual info, just checked that it exists).
