If you click on the quicksearch magnifying glass icon for an attribute of
Type:Email in the factbox, the search fails.

I think this happens because the quick search uses the $vuser string as the text
to search for.  But for an attribute of Type:Email this text is the wikitext
[mailto:email email] instead of the simple "email" that is stored in the database.

Maybe SMWDataValue->addQuicksearchLink() should use the $vxsd value, or some
other $valueMatchingWhatsInDB.  And/or Special:SearchTriple could have an
alternate set of query string parameters that are more tightly defined.

Indeed. Not sure whether this is a bug in Type:Email, in the generating code for
quick searches, or in our design of datavalues ;-) I will try to keep it in mind ...
