Description William Jon McCann 2012-05-26 19:42:57 UTC
We want the user to be able to invoke a search function when they just type.

It interferes with search and is very confusing particularly
when used in the sidebar.

I think until we have a better search function we could keep these on in the main views (the icon view has it too) since it can be quite handy to quickly select files.
What is really annoying is the one in the sidebar, which should go away.

It interferes with search in the main view. We want to eventually
move to a "just type" search box for the main view.
