We recently moved all child-meta domains to a <sitename>.meta.stackexchange.com to help with our move to HTTPS.

This does mean that when you search for meta.stackexchange.com, all child metas are returned - as their URLs contain that fragment. The autocomplete only populates the top 10 results, which doesn't include Meta Stack Exchange.

I don't see how we can fix this, given that the autocomplete should not return exact matches.

The work around is to drop the dot - searching for meta stack will give you far lessfewer results, including Meta Stack Exchange.
