Thanks for your bugreport.

Please see my reply to https://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/show_bug.cgi?id=11822

If you don't mind I would like to follow up on the bug there with you. I find the savannah bugtrack inconvenient.

Synaptinc 0.57 version introduced a strange bug/feature;)

Older versions had searching by name selected as default. Now a long-taking and resource-hungry searching method (full text search in packages descriptions) is selected. I think it is a bug and causes great slowdown.

The default search method should be reverted to the old method - searching in pacgage names.

Another suggestion: While searching in names and descriptions, the GUI freezes for several seconds. Wouldn't it be better to display a search progress dialog instead, so the application doesn't feel like 'hung' ?
