[Rt-devel] Bug - displaying links in searches

With RT 3.4.2, one of our users uncovered a bug with the display of 
ticket links (parent/child relationships) in search results.

The problem is that the parent and child links are displayed the 
wrong way round - Parent links under the Children column and vice versa.

In addition, the displayed value and URL are the wrong ones. For 
example, if ticket 1000 is a parent of 1500, the 'child' link that is 
displayed points to 1000 rather than 1500.

The following patch seems to solve both parts of the problem, 
although I haven't tested it out thoroughly with all the kinds of RT 

One more thing I noticed, although it may not be considered a bug, is 
that links to deleted tickets are shown.
