Public bug reported:

When using the ZeitgeistSearch gnome-shell extension, there is a silent
error that occurs in activateResult for the App- and Settings-
AsyncSearchProviders.  This is due to a call to Params, which hasn't
been defined.  I've attached a patch which solves this particular
problem by defining Params at the top of the file.

I'm also working on gnome bug 662341 which is related, whereby adding
results asynchronously means that they are never selected first in the
list, so you can't simply start typing an application and press Enter to
start it.  By default, all the asynchronous providers return an empty
list as initialResults, and gnome-shell doesn't update the selection
when new results are added, meaning the search buttons (such as
Wikipedia) are always selected by default.  I don't know whether that's
best handled in the extension or in gnome-shell, so please let me know
if I should file a new bug here instead.

If there's any other information I can provide, or tests I can run,
please let me know...
