woohoo, you are absolutelly right, sorry, I reported two bug at the same time
yesterday and it seems I made a confusion between their severity.

That's what I thought first, but I have the same problem with a fresh new
system user who just logged in.

Yes, you are right again, it doesn't proceed http://www.<a_word>.com but
(I definitelly shouldn't report two bugs at the same time).

I've just made some more tests, some of them work, some others don't work.
tests where word aren't searched with default engine :
tests where words are searched with default engine :
- debian konqueror
- assiettes fourchettes
- microsoft bug
It seems that the search is always proceed when I write at least two words.
It seems it nearly never works with only one word : I don't understand why it
works with "konqueror" and "mail". Maybe it works with some other word, but I
don't see any explanation for this strange behaviour.

default search engine is google
delimiter is ':'

I hope it's not a problem from me, but since it has the same behaviour with
new system user, I think it's not.
I hope it helps.
