  Focus drops from search input in GtkFileChooserDialog after first
  character, which stops searching (broken behaviour)

Status in GTK+:
Status in Ubuntu GNOME:
Status in gtk+3.0 package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  * Impact
  The focus gets removed from the search entry widget in the fileselector while 
typing which makes it difficult to use

  * Test case

  1. Open Gedit
  2. Choose Open -> Other Documents... to open a GtkFileChooserDialog
  3. Press on the search button next to Open
  4. Type what you are searching for

  Expected behaviour:
  Focus remains in the search input until I finish typing then results come up

  What happens instead:
  Searching stops after I enter the first characters because focus is lost from 
the search input

  * Regression potential

  The change is desactivating/reactivating typeahead in the gtk
  fileselector, check that this feature keeps working as it should
  (keyboard navigate by typing the first chars of a file/folder, that
  should move the focus to the first matching item and allows to
  navigate by hitting enter)


  I have noticed that after upgrading to GNOME 3.20 on Ubuntu GNOME
  16.04 that the built-in search functionality is almost impossible to
  use in the GTK file chooser (though it is the same one that allows you
  to save files as well as choose them).

  So if one types something into the search, after they have typed the
  first letter it will immediately select the top search result meaning
  one has to re-select the search box, this happens for every letter so
  searching for a long string becomes very annoying. If one carries on
  typing once it has selected the top result and unselected the search
  box it will start searching in the other search which only looks at
