  Duplicate results of "Search files" should show corresponding folder

Status in Nautilus:
  Fix Released
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The new search functionality of Nautilus by ad-hoc searching files when you start typing is loved by some and hated by others - I don't want to discuss this here.
  But the new search method lacks an important feature: it is not possible to distinguish two files (or folders) that are in different folders.
  Let me give an example.
  Create a new folder "test123" in your $HOME directory. Create another "test123" in "Downloads".
  Now navigate to your $HOME dir and start typing "test". Immediately nNautilus shows you the two entries "test123" (and maybe others if you have files/folders with similar names).
  But it is not distinguishable which of the two folders is "~/test123" and which is "~/Downloads/test123".

  Possible solution: Nautilus should show the folder containing this
  item as tooltip of the item.
