i've been bitten by this too.  perhaps it would be possible
to somehow highlight the search box when it's in use?  if the
inadvertent character is a period, or comma, or otherwise tiny
character, one has only a _very_ subtle visual cue as to what's
happened.  if the search field outline, or even perhaps just the
magnifier icon, were colored when text was entered, it would be pretty
obvious what was happening.
