You're right - the bug is about multiple parameters. But there
might also be some side effects which also affect single parameters.
To be sure, it is not the case, I'd suggest you apply the patch
Second, you should check "robots.txt", the "robots" META tag and
the settings of "bad_querystr" and "exclude_urls" in your Ht://Dig
Third, Ht://Dig won't follow the links if they are written using
if they are triggered by <FORM>s (I have a couple of pages where
I use this to exclude pages from being indexed).
