So why wouldn't #113300 be at least the first result in the drop-down, if not the only one, after typing its title exactly? Does it use the same routines/indexes as the standard search?

I didn't even know that box does a text search. I always punch in the question number. –  balpha Feb 19 '10 at 17:30
    
Yeah, it's easier sometimes to just type the title instead of just going to find the ID. Makes me want to see the ID in the list of existing close votes on a question. –  squillman Feb 19 '10 at 17:31

... or something like meta.stackexchange.com/questions/21826/… –  balpha Feb 19 '10 at 17:35
    
@squillman: the ID is in the URL; if you're using a browser like Firefox, point at (hover over) the question link. the URL is shown in the status bar at the bottom of the browser window. easy-peasy. –  quack quixote Feb 19 '10 at 17:35

Search is hard, let's go shopping! –  Ether Feb 19 '10 at 17:44
    
@tvanfosson: 1000 pardons for my gross ineptitude! Fixed :) –  squillman Feb 19 '10 at 17:57
    
@squillman -- thanks. I see it now. :-) –  tvanfosson Feb 19 '10 at 18:44
