When I check my watchdog logs, I always wonder if any of the searches didn't return any results. There is only one way to learn it, searching the same keywords again which creates another watchdog entry. Attached patch improves the watchdog message by adding number of search results and the elapsed time.
Patch also includes search result display improvements for the searcher. You can see the difference in the screenshot.
