In the past when I used intwerwiki shortcuts on the search box and hit go I was brought to the search menu with the option to go to the interwiki page.
For example if I typed "m:IRC" on the searchbox on English wikipedia searchbox and hit go it would find search results for IRC and give me the option to go to 'm:IRC' (meta:IRC). Or if I typed 'tr:Wikipedia' it would have taken me to Turkish wikipedia page on wikipedia.
Right now the interwiki shortcut is been ignored and this started recently in the past month.
Fixed in r35570. Using interwiki prefixes and hitting Go will always go to approriate interwiki pages.
