Bug Description

Binary package hint: tracker

Several Problems:

1) When going through the results, usually one entry is about 1.5 cm high. However, sometimes single 'pages' of 10 results have entries of about 7-8cm high, without any single element in the entry being that high. It can not really reproduced - in one of maybe 10 searches that problem comes up.

2) There is no way to sort the results - e.g. by the folder in which they were found

3) an option to search for an "exact match" would be nice - now when searching for an acronym, it also delivers results in which words include the acronym. (i.e. Mr. Ito =/= ITO, exitons contain ito but are not what searched for)

I've now figured out how to duplicate the messed-up entries: It seems to happen always, when the column divider is so far on the right, that one of the columns there has little space in the width and thus needs a lot of height for being displayed. When the column divider between documents/text/... and the actual results is moved to the left, the height of the entries stays, although it is not needed any more.

I would also like to see an "exact match" option.
