If you search for a term in file names (very useful, since so many users don't
categorize or even annotate their images, especially on commons), you get 48
results of files containing your search term. If you want to browse to the "Next
48", you just get the 48 files that have been uploaded after the 48th image that
contained your search term, regardless if they contain the search term or not.
If this isn't trivial, please consider to re-introduce such a search form for
"Special:Imagelist", which was also very useful and saving bandwidth. As an
illustration: I like to search for buildings of theatre buildings, so I often
search for "thea" and "tea". I don't need a thumbnail to see that "Tea cup"
isn't what I search, but "teat. municipale" is. So the search feature in
Special:Imagelist would also be welcome if added again.
There should be no search box on Special:Newimages (since it makes no
sense), and there should be a search box on Special:Imagelist.

But - just to make sure - please don't remove the search box on Newimages before
the one on Imagelist ist implemented - it's at least better than nothing at all
which will make it nearly impossible to find the latest images by their name
Fixed on CVS HEAD.
