On those addresses with more than 50 starting with a common letter, they are of course split up, but when I click on another of the sub-letter lists, the “Find” string disappears in the search results and I’m back to a subset of the whole list, not the searched list.  Is there any way around this?  Thanks much.

Since we’re on the topic of items residing at bugs.launchpad.net, what are the odds of Bug #1067953 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/1067953) getting a little love?  Not quite as easy a change as this one, but would benefit many I’m sure.  Everyone subscribe!
