When doing an identifier search, type into the form an
identifier name. The resulting URL only
contains 'ident?=whatever', which fails.

New versions of mozilla prepend the full URL to the
lxr server and thus work correctly.

In the ident perl script line 40 (sub ident) that
begins:

print("<form method=get action.............

the value of 'baseurl' from the lxr.conf file needs to
be inserted. How to do this?

Possibly the web browser should insert the 'baseurl'
string into the ident URL by itself but only the new
versions of mozilla do this. Netscape 4.7 and IE do
not do this. So for compatibility lxr should include
the 'baseurl' in the html code for the form.

    I'm not seeing this problem, using Netscape 4.7x on Linux or
    Windows, Mozilla on Windows and IE4 on Win32. Has anyone
    else seen this problem?

    One thing to check would be whether the <base> attribute is
    being properly set - it is output as part of each page in
    the <head> section. If not, then $baseurl is not set, which
    would indicate a config file problem.
