Public bug reported:

This bug happens with version 2.16.0-0ubuntu2 shipped with edgy beta.

Firstly, use the deskbar applet as usual. For example, let's earch for 'Ubuntu' in wikipedia.
The behaviour compared to Dapper seems to have changed since the typed text is _not_ cleared after triggering the desired action. I consider this a bug itself because I do not want the previous text to appear that prominently on my gnome-panel (I use the "entry in panel" layout). I just wouldn't want everybody to see that if I had looked up 'Hemorrhoids' instead of 'Ubuntu' in wikipedia.

When using the hotkey (Alt+F3) to activate the deskbar-applet the next
time I want to use it, it selects the whole previous text so that I can
start typing immediately. However, this doesn't happen if I click it
with the mouse. You can see that the text is selected for some
milliseconds but then the cursor moves to the position where I have
clicked unselecting everything. However, it works if I click on the
border of the applet.

I would prefer that the text field is cleared when using the "entry in
panel" layout. That would also make the selection bug disappear as well.
