Still a problem in 2.31.1

This is still an issue on 2.32.2. My observation is that the Search function only works for Twitter.

I have Twitter, and newly set up Facebook on Gwibber.

summary: - Search does nothing (facebook)
+ Search Function Does Not Work on Facebook, and others

Anyone else having the same issue with Gwibber?

Search has not worked for me for months, on *any* of the services I use: gwibber, identica, facebook, friendfeed, google buzz, flickr, or digg. I think it stopped working around the same time the services became separate packages.

Actually, individual searches do seem to work (but twitter only, AFAICT). What is broken is the 'global' search stream, that used to show all the search terms combined on all of your services. This rocked.
