Thank you for pointing this out.  The problem has been addressed and
the solution will be available in the next executable update.

In the meantime, you can get around the problem by opening the Stata Viewer
before performing your _first_ search.  For example, instead of going straight
to Help->Search, click on the "Start Viewer" button and then do a search.

You only have to do this once after starting xstata--for any additional
searches, you can go straight to Help->Search.
