Searching anything using the search tab in the documentation pane doesn't
yield any result, not even the word "Octave". See attached pic.
IMO this is an "incorrect result", as the word "Octave" is mentioned several
times in the subpane to the right. 

I hit this before but could work around it by using the index tab. But now I
wanted to search for the keyword (statement) "for" and the the search gets a
bit harder.

For Octave newbies a better search capability would be a big benefit, I
The best would be a full text search capability but maybe that is asking too
much; but at least function names, keywords and reserved words should be
searchable in the built-in docs.
