    1. Find a heading with unsuppressed bibs.
    2. Add all unsuppressed bib_id numbers for the heading to a record set in GDC
    3. Run a Data Change job with a rule that will suppress all bibs on the heading.
    4. Search for heading in OPAC. It is returned and shows the original number of unsuppressed bibs.
    5. Click the heading to view the bibs. Returned to search page with message, "Could not retrieve search results."
    6. All other searches fail until the user starts a new OPAC session.
