Description Jonas Kölker (reporter) 2010-03-27 16:49:10 UTC
In Application Manager, when you search for packages and the results are ready,
you're shown a message "Search complete" for a little while.

This message blocks the view of the topmost application, and its coming and
going is distracting.

It also appears to serve no useful purpose: you're not presented with partial
search results or any indication of progress, so it's not likely you'll wonder
"gee, is it really done? I wish it would tell me".  The list of search results
tells you it's done.

Therefore, I think the application manager would be a better piece of software
if the message wasn't shown at all.

// Does Application Manager have super cow powers? ;-)

Sure, here are some steps:

1. Open the Application Manager (*)
2. Click the bar in the top part of the screen where it says "Application
3. In the pop-down menu, click the "Search" button
4. Type "todo" in the keyword field
5. Click the "Search" button
6. Wait a while

I am shown a list of search results, and (temporarily) a yellow pop-up bar
which says "Search Complete"

I am shown a list of search results and *no* pop-up bar.

Always (I've tried _not_ reproducing it, and I have failed).

"Search" will not be available anymore from the title bar in the next public
update (PR1.2) because of bug 5388 being fixed.
I've tried your steps in a newer internal-only version and everything works as
