Google Groups search broken?

Google Groups search is only returning one page of results for me at the moment – there's no way to navigate past the first page. I understand Groups is a relatively little-used and neglected Google property, but this is kind of strange.

Here is a search of groups for [example]. ...

There are no navigation links, but you can either use a bookmarklet to navigate or manually set the value of "start" in the url.

Here are the next ten results. ...

Jesse's bookmarklet site has bookmarklets to increment or decrement a url by one. ...
The "start" value should be last number in the url. By setting "num=1", you could navigate the results one at a time. ...

To get to the next page of ten results you can modify the bookmarklet to increment by ten. I would post the modified bookmarklet itself, but I suspect this forum would corrupt it. Try changing "IB=1;" to "IB=10;". The bookmarklet uses javascript that must be enabled. Do not set "num=1" if you use this.

You may also want to look at one hundred results per page. This can be specified on the advanced page. ...
Here are one hundred groups results for [example]. ...
