Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Let's imagine that we have two files in the Recent files, that would match if I type "h".

I type "h" in the Dash and they appear in Files & Folders.

Once they have matched, if I keep typing "hhhhhhh", they shouldn't matched, but they keep appearing in the results pane. (see screenshot)

This does not happen if they don't match the first time or with other type of objects (other files or applications), only with the files that are also in Recent Files.

Old code, the new version will be much better... I'll mark that won't fix since we want to fix it in Natty, and if a duplicate arrives, it should still be in the bug DB.
