Thanks for the tip.  Unfortunately the search engine seems to be broken:

    Error, cannot find a usable cache file! 
    Glimpse error
    The search parameters caused an error in the call to Glimpse. 
    Please try your search again with different parameters. 
    Output from Glimpse: 
        cannot open for writing: /tmp/.glimpse_tmp.6095, errno=13

The only parameters I supplied were "unique ID question" (as the string
to search for) which seem to be the only reasonable parameter to use for
this thread.

If the maintainer of the archives follows the list, please suggest a way
to submit a search for a thread which does not trigger this failure.
