After upgrade from unity 5.6 to unity 5.8 I've noticed a certain regression in the user experience when launching an app with the type-to-search dash feature from the Home lens.
Behavior in 5.6:
It allows me to launch an app with the return key as soon as the first search result recieved, e.g. I type 'ge' and immediately hit return, gedit launches though there're some search results left that could be displayed if I would wait a bit longer
Behavior in 5.8:
I have to wait until all search results are displayed before I can launch an app, e.g. I type 'ge', immediately hit return and nothing happens until dash displays all the search results it got.
This makes a user wait for a second or several seconds before he can get the application running although he already got the desired search result with the first couple of typed letters.
Maybe there is a reason for this behavior change but it feels like a usability regression.
