Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1773
Bugzilla generates huge web pages for some/many queries

Bugzilla generates 200K+ web pages with greatest of ease.
This kind of sucks when you're on a dialup connection.
Specifics: the huge pages are the specific bug pages you
get at through a query. They're probably huge because of
- they have hyperlinks to every other bug that
your query turned up
and - every such hyperlink has a list of *all* the
bug numbers encoded in it, so that 'next bug'
and 'previous bug' will work.
Personally, I'd much rather have to back up one level
to the overall list of bugs a query turned up than have
big 200K web pages that take ages to download and a not
insignificant amount of time to render in Netscape.
Reproduction: query for all bugs changed in the past two
days. You'll get a list between 100 and 200, depending on
how active people have been, and then you'll get to the
resulting really big per-bug web pages.
ok, the navigation bug list is now a dropdown menu that reduced the
page size of the "last 2 days" query from ~350K down to a more sane
