Bug Description

When looking for 'Staralfur' it maches (ie non-accented search string matches and accented search result).
But when looking for 'Starálfur' (note the accented acute), then the lens doesn't display the result anymore.

It does work in Banshee with both non-accented and accented search strings FWIW.

We can close a lot of by, for P, defining a dbus search interface through banshee including a standalone daemon that can search when banshee isn't running. Then we can get the results exactly as they are in banshee without having to re-implement them, and always playing catch up. Didn't have time for this cycle with the short notice, but this should be our plan of action for next.

The revised search match algorithm currently used in Unity head matches accented characters correctly. This bug can be considered fixed.
