search progress doesn't behave like other progress one example: when search completes, the progress meter stays at 100%. I've noticed that users like clear indications that a search is going and that a search has completed.
saw this during jglick's UE study, so adding [ue] to status whiteboard. note to self, check subscribe dialog progress, ab advanced search progress, progress during ab card copy or dnd.
Another example (file): bug 101836. Not sure whether we have existing bug(s) on this specific issue, but I think we had some old ones about search ui status bar text not updating appropriately...
Created attachment 84901 [details] [diff] [review] Simple fix Just set the progressbar's percent to 0 (rather than 100) when the search is done.

Uisng sep16 commercial trunk, win98, mac OS 10.1, linux rh6.2: This looks OK to me... "Searching" appears while search is still ongoing and the barber pole clears after search is done, no % progress bar. Matches/no matches found appear in text. AB search doesn't use a progress bar at all that I can see for long searches, just reports number of matches. Marking verified.
