[squeak-dev] Dock searchbar and message names

The little search bar in the Dock is a delightful tool that saves so much time it's ridiculous. 

*Except* for the way that typing in a phrase that happens to exactly match a known message results in a browser on *only* that exact message. That annoys me pretty much every time because almost every time I was actually wanting the MessageList with the matches for the phrase.

There is a trivial solution to this, requiring us simply to delete the mid-method clause starting with 
`Symbol hasInterned: input ifTrue: `
Yes, I suppose we could add YetAnotherPreference but we already have about ten times more than is sensible. Alternatively perhaps making it shift-key dependent - one way includes the full match aspcet, the other avoids it - might suit people better.

What do you think?
