    A similar problem seems to happening with searches from the Google home page.
    
    
    Searching for "Iridium 73", for instance, throws up a few matches, two of which
    are from www2.satellite.eu.org.  Selecting the "More results from www2.satellite.eu.org"
    link throws up an error 'Your search - site:www2.satellite.eu.org "Iridium 73"
    - did not match any documents'.
    
    It looks as if the "site:" (inserted by Google!) is no longer being recognised
    by Google as a keyword.
    
    Repeating the search after deleting the "site:" throws up a list of matches,
    and *then* selecting "repeat the search with the omitted results included" finally
    throws up a sensible list!
    
    Not an elegant workaround!
