[chandler-users] Search all items in all collections

Your workaround works surprisingly well! I have selected all my 10
collections, which sums up to 3000 items and searched for items without
major problems. I also tried to search for my name in the who column, and it
successfully returned all of my items (218). However, when I tried to clean
the edit box for the first time, a exception screen appeared and I had to
restart Chandler, but it doesn't seem to be happening again.

However, I think the development team should give the deserved attention to
this feature formalize it in a next revision.

Thanks for the tip,
