When filling in the "Type to Find Users", it seems to sort by exact match and then by reputation when I am on the reputation tab.

For example, please consider the following search results:

user search results for "test" show many low-rep users with that exact username, followed by higher-rep users whose usernames contain "test" as a substring

This threw me off since I thought that the sort order is reputation. I guess this often might give people what they want, but when picking a popular name it shows a lot of 0 rep users. Maybe adding a filter for low rep to the exact match might give more expected results, or just sorting on rep?

    SEVEN years later, I was about to report the same bug, then I saw this question. Since I already have a screen at hand, I will edit to add it for further reference.
