[bioontology-support] MeSH 2009_2009_02_13 in BioPortal via REST Services

For various projects, we are trying to leverage the REST services
described here:

It appears that there is a problem with many of the available calls
(and it turns out the most potentially useful ones for us) when
targeting the MeSH ontology.

According to the "all ontologies" call:

MeSH should have ontologyId=1351 and ontologyVersionId=40401, and this
does appear to be the case since the following calls seem to work:


"all root terms":

However, the following calls all return errors:

"all terms":



"paths to roots":

"paths to leaves":


Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
