Thanks!  That did the trick.

BTW...Is anyone interested in changing the keywords from an open text
box to a select list?  If so, I'd be more than willing to contribute a
patch to 2.17.3!

Actually, show_bug.cgi isn't a good place to put it because it'll be
missing when the bug form is displayed after changing a bug in

I'd probably put it in the choices sub in
