This has been known about for years.  If my understanding is correct 
much of the web support is done on the same basis as (c)Python support, 
i.e. volunteers.  Given that the completely updated site only went live 
within the past few months, I believe that fixing the search was not 
very high up the priority list, possibly not even on it :(

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask 
what you can do for our language.
