  unity HUD search can't match more detailed search term

Status in Unity:
Status in unity package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The Dutch term for 'Shutdown' is 'Afsluiten'. If I type in 'afsl' in
  the HUD, it shows the item 'Afsluiten', see the first screenshot.
  However, if I make the searchterm more detailed by adding a letter,
  'afslu', the HUD does not show anything, not matter how long I wait.
  If I type another letter, 'afslui', the item for 'Afsluiten' is
  visible in the HUD again. This behaviour is completely reproducable,
  and also occurs for some other terms.

  For example, the same translation, 'Afsluiten', is used to close
  firefox. The bug also occurs for the firefox menu: if I type 'afsl' in
  firefox I get the (firefox) menu entry to shutdown firefox. However,
  adding the 'u' makes all results disappear, and adding the 'i' brings
  them back again.

  Something else I've noticed, not sure if it's important:
  If I type 'afslui', and then backspace the last 'i', the correct options remain visible.

  Please let me know if you need any more information
