Topic: Search CSV download

Just noticed that the CSV download option on the Search results seems to generate an enormous file (53MB) that bombs out when you try to load it into Excel. I searched for "Tachina fera" and then hit the Download button. The file seems to contain genuine search results but then just lists lots of numbers in column A.
