Possible bug in search facility

Jim Garrison
I believe there is a bug in the search facility.  I found this initially
on the MIT keyserver, but it seems to affect all the keyservers I've
tried.

If I search for my email "[hidden email]" (without the quotes) the server
returns a totally unrealted key

  pub  2048R/07A7DBC7 2018-06-14 Yegor Timoshenko

This happens both with and without "Only return exact matches"
checked.  In both cases the results page is titled

    Search results for 'org jhg acm'

If I search for only "jhg" (without the quotes) I get two resuts

  pub  4096R/006D909C 2018-06-26 JHG (Olympus) <[hidden email]>
  pub  2048R/07A7DBC7 2018-06-14 Yegor Timoshenko

The second key is followed by a VERY large amount of binary data (i.e.
looks like gibberish in Firefox, see attached screenshot) followed by

  Server: sks_www/1.1.6
  Cache-Control: no-cache
  Pragma: no-cache
  Expires: 0
  Content-length: 595
  Content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
  Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *

  Time Out
  Error handling request (GET /pks/lookup?search=jhg&op=index&exact=on):
    Timed out after 2 seconds

The only way to find my keys is using the search string
"James H. Garrison"

This appears to be the same as issue #63.
