In Oneiric the problem happens quite often for me.

I delete ./local/share/zeitgeist/fts.index and kill the zeitgeist-
daemon.

Then I can find my files in the dash search again.

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: unity-place-files

  Having got past bug 662619 I have unity-place-files and zeitgeist-
  daemon installed and running.  In gnome-activity-journal, I can see my
  recently changed files, and when I click the "files & folders" button,
  I can see some downloads, recent files, and favourite folders.

  However, when I type into the search bar in the files lens, the
  spinner turns briefly but the list of files does not change.  If I
  type a full filename or a substring it doesn't open or narrow down to
  that file.  Also, in the global search lens, whatever that's called, I
  can't search for files at all.
