Bug Description

Searching for * with catfish shows the search-in-progress spinning symbol, but the search will never stop. Additionally the stop button does not work and .xsession-errors gets flooded with StopIteration entries until one closes the catfish window.

The .xsession-errors file can grow quite rapidly, on my system it was something around a few mb per second.

This happens with catfish 0.6.1 on Xubuntu 13.04. It also happens on Xubuntu 12.04 with catfish 0.6.1 from the catfish stable ppa, although flooding .xsession-errors is not an issue.
