The log search form at http://toolserver.org/~delinker/index.php is really
picky about filenames, and rather uninformative when it doesn't find a match.
I'd like to suggest at least the following improvements:

  * Treat spaces and underscores in filenames as equivalent.
  * Treat the first letter of the filename as case-insensitive.
  * Optionally, apply other MediaWiki title normalization steps (see
Title::secureAndSplit()).
  * If no matches are found and the file name contains a colon, suggest
searching without the (presumed) namespace prefix.
  * When showing search results, prefill the input field with the filename
searched for.
  * If possible, provide a "next page" link if there are more results than fit
on the page.
