This has been the situation for a long time. I didn't see this initially, search used to work then.
Mine is an upgraded system from 11.04, not a fresh install. I didn't use Gnome 3 in 11.04 though -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zeitgeist Framework Team, which is subscribed to Zeitgeist Framework. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/864206 Title: Gnome Shell, App search causes 100% cpu Status in Zeitgeist Framework: New Bug description: I am running Gnome Shell on Ubuntu 11.10 Beta 2 (up-to-date). When I enter any key in the "type to search" text box on the right hand side, (you will see this when you click on Activities Button), it immediately causes 100% CPU. I have a quad core Sony Vaio laptop, I could run top from the console (ctrl+alt+f1) and could see Gnome shell causing 100% CPU.
