Error when choosing "Search for files" from a folder quick menu

The error dialog I get when right-clicking on the desktop and selecting "Search for Files..."
Description of problem:
This seems to be broken. That is, right-clicking on a folder and selecting "Search for Files..." doesn't result in a search at that location. It brings up the "Search for Files" app alright--along with a dialog box saying it can't find the directory. The path given in the dialog box suggests that the actual path has been mangled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have exactly the same problem with same dialog error.
I rebuilt a RPM for Fedora 10 from nautilus-search-tool-0.2.2-8.fc11.src.rpm found on Koji but problem still exists with this version.

Search tool cannot stat existing directory.
I have the same issue, though searching works when I dismiss this error.
see screenshot attached.

This *might* have been fixed in latest 0.3.0 upstream release. From their Changelog:
2009-04-12 Andrea Zagli <email@example.com>
* added turkish translation (thanks to Yavuz Selim)
* fixes to work with nautilus >= 2.22 (thanks to nautilus-open-terminal
* fixes to work with gnome-utils => 2.22
* version 0.3.0
I am working on an updated 0.3.0 spec & SRPM to see if this fixes things.
I updated the spec and SRPM to version 0.3.0 and it seems to work fine on my Fedora 11 box. Rpmlint -vi on the spec, SRPM, and RPM are clean, no warnings or errors. I also cleaned up the spec and removed some of the patches that were no longer needed. It builds fine in Koji for dist-f11 and dist-f12.
I find n-s-t-0.3.0-1.fc11 crashes nautilus when I try to use it.
Can you try this package instead? (If you download it manually, you may need to 'yum remove nautilus-search-tool' before you install the new one. If you simply click on the package and let PackageKit handle it, everything will work fine.) It works for me without crashing:
Now it works, thanks.
