This behaviour seems to be similar to that reported in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=720106

I could not get the thumbnail to open, but so far as I can see it is the same referral I randomly have experienced when clicking page numbers of the index pages in user history.

I have no idea why it might be happening.

I believe that is just the search "timing out" - because of activity on the boards, the search underlying the "get unanswered posts" will only be valid for a limited amount of time.

I have reported this before (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=390899), but have received no meaningful responses (in fact, no responses whatsoever from forum staff).

@ lloyd_b: I get the same thing when looking for unanswered posts, and also use the links from the team.

@ all: I think the timeout is a feature. Please wait for u-g or another admin to give a more precise answer. Thanks.

From what I have gleaned from Google and other vB sites, that is right. I think it has something to do with keeping the database server from heavy load.

What I do if I want to pull up a bunch of unanswered threads is to search, and as soon as the search pages open, open the next few pages of it in another tab to keep it from timing out.
