Screen grab of search results for 'plumboozle' (68.93 KB, image/jpeg)

Screen grab of search results for 'handsaw', which gives 5 results (82.29 KB, image/jpeg)
2005-09-21 14:48 UTC, Mark Clements (HappyDog)

Description Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2005-09-21 14:42:09 UTC
If a search returns zero results then the page indicates that you are viewing
"1-0 of 0" results and a single blank result is displayed.

To replicate, enter a word that returns no results, e.g. 'plumboozle' into the
search box and click 'search'.

I tested this on Wikipedia, Wiktionary and Commons with a couple of different
terms, and all exhibited this behaviour.

Screen grab of search results for 'handsaw', which gives 5 results

Upon further research, it appears that a blank search result is being added to
the end of the correct results.  I have attached a screen grab showing the
results for 'handsaw', where after the 5 actual results, there is a 6th ghost

I will change the bug title to reflect this new information.
