Search is broken - advanced/author

When I try to do an advanced search for all posts by a specific author (leaving all other fields blank), it takes a few years for the results page to load, then it's a blank search form (of the 'unadvanced' variety) - blank, that is, except for the graphics and ads.

Searching for an author used to work a few days ago...

I really miss this feature, especially since "My Recent Posts" keeps dropping my recent posts (today, it lists only my last 9 posts).

Many thanks in advance for restoring the "author search."
