The search field seems too eager to start a search. Way too often, when I type something in the search field, it ends up in a jumbled state, because in the meantime a search provided results, and the search input seems to be reset to the content available when the search was triggered.

For example, it happens basically every time I search for %1$S, where the special characters require to use SHIFT on my keyboard, and so a bit more time to type than a normal character. So, I might end up with "%$S", "%1S", etc.

I wonder if we should require Enter to trigger search, like we do in the Machinery.

I assume there's a delay before starting the search. What's the current value? Maybe a start is to increment it.
