Search results don't update when submitting the same search query consecutively

This may have been intended as a feature, but I’ve found it to be a bit frustrating when using the search panel for find/replace operations. I sometimes find myself searching for something, making an edit, and trying to “re-search” to have the instance filtered out.

Steps to reproduce

  • Have some file ( with the contents foo.
  • From the global search view, search for foo.
  • Change the contents of to bar.
  • Re-focus the search input (leaving the search for foo) and press Enter.

Expected result

  • No results found. (the previous match should now be filtered out given that the file has changed)

Actual result

  • Nothing happens and still appears in the search results.
