We can leave that field empty. Someone earlier complained
that they did not find the "search patient" widget. That's
why the tag was added in the first place. Adding a label to
the box wastes screen estate. What is your suggestion ? I
don't care either way.

Code making that more intuitive is more than welcome. I
agree sometimes having to double-click is annoying.

Are you sure you want that ?  All 130000 names in my test
database ?  Would you agree to put a hard limit on the
number of names it returns ?  Or do you think we must invent
a paging mechanism ?

making this optional is a good idea -> TODO

If someone gets up and codes option checkboxes into message
dialogs (such as in Mozilla) I will sure as hell use it.

Yes, there is roughness around this corner.

Actually, yes.
