That part actually should work. Try 'kirk' in the search field and hit enter
Glad you tried GNUmed so I get some feedback. I expected worse reports :-)

Thanks for testing

Depends. Look at the shell that opens when you start GNUmed. Or search for 
gnumed.log. On my box it get written to the currents users's local files 
folder. I have no idea what the name is on non-German windows versions.

You can however specify the path to the logfile in the gnumed.bat.

use '--log-file=<your path and filename here>'
