  adding options to the koji command doesn't make much sense in the
context of a search using the text box.  but here's where it gets
*really* weird.

  if i search (graphically) for "kernel-firmware" as an RPM, i get no
hits.  if, on the other hand, i search for the RE "kernel-f*", it
shows up.  the obvious test is then to search for "kernel-firmware*"
as an RPM, which finds it.  that's just weird.  and totally
non-intuitive.

  is it possible that that just happens to me?  can anyone else
reproduce that?
