Bug Description

That's happening in saucy in my current session:

- open the dash, I get an empty screen with the "no result matching the query" string (the wording is not exact, I'm using a french locale and doing the approximate translation)

- type something, results get listed

- type backspace a few times to clear the entry, apps get listed


sometimes clearly the query (either with backspace or esc) leads to the empty screen again

That's still an issue in trusty, discussing it on IRC mhr3 told me to check the filters ... and only "help" was activated in there?!

Some extra comments/though:

- that was not only a configuration issue, the dash is working after login and those issues appear mid-session, if the filter was wrong it would always be empty...

- the filters are not always respected (typing something and hitting "esc" is giving me a full dash when it should not if it was respecting the filter)

I changed my filters to activate applications today so I'm not sure what the config was, I'm going to watch if I can still reproduce

Not sure if that's the same issue (let me know if it's not, I can open a new report)

Today I wanted to test how the dash behaves when not using only source, I did change the 'remote-content-search' key to 'none'

Using the dash a bit I'm in a situation where the home scope doesn't search for files anymore, despite having files.scope in the gsettings 'always-search' key ...

(it seems to work when I change the remote key back)

That bustle log is a record of the trafic while I do:

- open the dash
- type "pdf" in the home screen
-> only evince gets listed, no files, the files filters are not showed as selected in the dash UI
- close the dash
