I would not expect Google to index the dynamic tracker form pages, 
certainly not all of them, as it would have to know which issue numbers 
are currently valid in the template 'http:/bugs/', where 
# is up to 7 digits.

The tracker has a search function. I found this issue by searching the 
tracker for 'all text: path browser', 'components: IDLE', and 'status: 
don't care' and then looking at the 8 responses.

Path browser works in 2.7 and 3.2. It was broken in 3.3.0 and has been 
fixed for 3.3.1 and 3.4.0. The issue status is 'closed', so one must 
change the search status field from the default of 'open' to find it.
