Description Jamesday 2004-09-18 21:50:33 UTC
Searches for empty strings are slow. Should be replaced by an empty results
page, help page for search which points anyone who wants all pages to
Special:Allpages or any other approach which doesn't actually make the query.

During a few hours earlier today I saw examples from jawiki and dewiki. Here's
the ja version from MyTop:

1192  wikiuser   rabanus:38073     jawiki       248  Query SELECT
cur_id,cur_namespace,cur_title,cur_text FROM cur,searchindex WHERE
cur_id=si_page AND (MATCH(si_text) AGAINST('' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AND
cur_is_redirect=0) AND
