It is not possible to give an exact answer.  For example you can see everywhere urls like this that have been indexed by all three of the main search engines  www.domain.com/cgi/cgi-script.pl?parameter1=variable1¶meter2=variable2 on the other hand I have seen situations where they have not been indexed. Possibly because very often long urls are on practically duplicate product pages or are very deep and this could be a reason.

The answer is keep them as simple as possible and/or use mod_rewrite because www.widgets.com/store/prod21.html makes it easier for the bots :)
