Catfish search result: Fatal error, search was aborted

In the Lubuntu documentation, Catfish is the currently recommended GUI 
search tool.

But after installing it, on my very first search attempt (looking for 
boot-repair, with search starting in the root), it generated the result 
error "Fatal error, search was aborted."

It does this when using either the Find or Locate backend.  In testing 
to date, it seems to display this error in the results pane whenever it 
cannot find a match.

Playing around with Find directly (I'm still a newbie), when it cannot 
find a match, it simply shows no result.  So on the face of it, this 
would seem to be a bug with the current version.

I can't be only one to have noticed this.  Is there a solution?
