Bug#497649: wordnet: wnb does not show all synonims any more

Package: wordnet
Version: 1:3.0-11+lenny1
Severity: normal

In the wordnet browser, after looking for a name, I ask for its
synonims.  However, I only get a line saying that there are N senses.  I
can only get the synonims one at a time, by writing a sense number in
the sense box and then asking for synonims.

This is a regression with respect to the previous behaviour of
displaying the synonims of all the senses if the sense box was empty.

I speak about regression because this behaviour is inconvenient and
because it is not consistent with the docs.
