#5051: maxlat=, maxlon=, etc link to osm.org no longer work

 Previously, links like the following would display the specified bounding
 box (as a yellow rectangle) and zoom the map to best fit that box:
 http://www.openstreetmap.org/?minlon=0.8969&minlat=52.3616&maxlon=1.1020&maxlat=52.3865&layers=C&box=yes

 Since the launch of the latest osm.org redesign (or possibly longer) these
 links have stopped working. Instead no bbox is shown, and the map view is
 just the last place you viewed on osm.org.

 This breaks existing links and bookmarks, so please can the previous
 functionality be restored.
