Description Dave Malcolm 2007-02-03 16:40:27 EST
Description of problem:
Launch control-center, click on Filter and start typing "compiz"
At "com" and beyond: get "No matches found" etc

Looks like it's only searching the explicit text for the items.  It should
search inside various synonyms etc, so e.g. "compiz" should match "Desktop Effects".

- "wallpaper" matches nothing; it ought to match "Desktop Background"
- "accessibility" only matches "Keyboard accessibility"; it ought to also match
Assistive Technology
- "a11y" matches nothing; should match the ones above
- "software" matches nothing: should match a launcher for "Add/Remove Software"
- "browser" matches nothing: should match "Preferred Applications"
- "terminal" matches nothing: should match "Preferred Applications"
- "mail" matches nothing: should match "Preferred Applications"

Should also be "Search" not "Filter"
