[Guido, on sharing a search finger and getting worse-than-linear
 behavior in a simple test case]

See my reply on SourceForge (crossed in the mails).  I predict that fixing
this in an acceptable way (not bulletproof, but linear-time for all
predictably common cases) is a two-character change.

Surprise, although maybe I'm hallucinating (would someone please confirm?):
when I went to the SF patch manager page to look for your patch (using the
Open Patches view), I couldn't find it.  My guess is that if there are "too
many" patches to fit on one screen, then unlike the SF *bug* manager, you
don't get any indication that more patches exist or any control to go to the
next page.
