Query for "Head First JSP" breaks Amazon's web site

I don't know this has been noted before, but if you go to Amazon's web site
and do a query for "Head First JSP", you get back a web page in which
most of the links are to localhost:8080 (and hence don't work).

I've duplicated this on two different machines, with two different users. Does this occur
for other people?

Just searching for JSP doesn't do it.

OK, I just did some more checking, and although it occurs on Safari, it doesn't happen in IE.

I use Safari and it didn't happen to me although I did get a blank search result (main result screen) with this on the left side area:

Refine your search:
