If it is a server error, then we should probably fix this behavior.

I think what needs be done is to handle this such that it only
returns a search error and not a server error.
A workaround would be to do in results page:
[if cgi MM]
[and !scratch did_search]
<!-- set error [error name="Search expired" set="Your search has expired."] -->
That should bounce to the error.html page if they are doing a more
and have not done a search in this session.
