The "search for files" context menu item is provided by nautilus-search-tool
Comment 2 Marc Wilson 2009-05-01 00:41:10 EDT
If you look in the process list, you see:

dell $ ps ax | grep search
30242 ?        Sl     0:00 gnome-search-tool --path='/home/mwilson/Desktop'

But the error message is:

Error stating file '/home/mwilson/Desktop/'/home/mwilson/Desktop'': No such file or directory

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
