[squeak-dev] Another oddity

Well, it may be worth noting that this is not a search dialog for what  
is in the list.  When I hit Cmd-F (or Ctrl-F) in the first list pane,  
I am not searching for class categories, but rather classes.

As far as I can tell, the search dialog which appears in 4.5 works  
fine and does not exhibit the problem reported in this thread.

Also, please don't take this search dialog away ;)    To reiterate,  
this is not a filter feature, but rather a "class search" feature.
