Really, I'd prefer a button to select from regex or text search.  That 
aside, a note at the top of the box stating this is *not* a text search, 
see "help" for more informatoin on how to search" or something like that.

Its just very counterintuitive to have a box that says search for members, 
and to be unable to insert a members actual address and get a hit.
