***Steps to Reproduce: 
1) Open your sidebar to the Search tab
2) type a search term and click 'Search'

***Actual Results: 
	The browser looks busy for a sec and the button changes to 'Stop'
Then it reverts to 'Search' and nothing has happened. No results in the Sidebar

Using US Windows 98, Recommended install, 042404 build, bug reproduces as 
described above.

However, I just saw Sidebar Search work on TPringle's machine with the same 
build, but I do not know which type of install he used.

After a recommended and full install of build 2001042420, I see that the 
default basic sidebar search is still broken.

matt, maybe try an opt build or <gulp> commercial build? I can still repro this on three
different platforms with a mix of new/old profiles on the 20010426 builds. Lynnw and others
have seen this as well. Although, there is one reprot of someone else w/a build that should've
showed the bug but did not.

the build I showed you it working was commercial optimized.
I've tried 2 machines....3 types of builds.
We need to sit down together and look at this.  What a pain in the ars this bug

Basic sidebar search works if the user switches to Advanced, performs a search 
and then switches back to Basic. Suggests that default search is not working. 
This test was performed in build 20010508 (commercial).
