Description Martin Simon 2015-03-30 11:50:11 UTC
Description of problem:
Nautilus has a feature to select items matching pattern. When I write an existing pattern, all matching items are selected. But if I write some non existing pattern, which does not obviously match any item (e.g. "kjhakhsd"), nothing happens. This should lead to unselecting items which does not match the pattern, so nothing should be selected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start nautilus and navigate Home directory
2. press CTRL+S and type "?esktop", confirm (now Desktop folder should be selected)
3. press CTRL+S again, type "ajhkjdhfsdk" and confirm

Actual results:
Desktop folder is still selected

Expected results:
Nothing is selected as nothing match the "ajhkjdhfsdk" pattern, obviously
