I too noticed the advanced search to be severely broken or at least confusing.  Under the Component field it tells you to "Click to list all components" but what exactly are you supposed to click?  At the time I tried, typing in the Component field did not get me a reduced list like it did before so I eventually had to use a simple search and the sort by the component column.  Now however it appears that entering text into the Component field does cause a list to appear for those that match.   I still think the "Click to.." message is confusing.  Some of my confusion may just be due to the incredibly slow response time, Now I've played again with it a bit and Firefox is reporting that the script has become unresponsive.

It certainly doesn't seem very usable to me.  I didn't file a bug on BZ because I wasn't sure where exactly one does that.
