[Meta] Why does search from Q&A page return home page only?

When I am on an actual Q&A page, and want to look up something, I'll use the search box in the green banner in the header. When I type in my terms and hit enter, it always sends me back to the home page. It generates URLs of this kind:

http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questions/?search=&query=calc+reference

which ... goes to the home page! This strikes me as weird, counter-intuitive, etc. I would expect to get the results of my search query.

So it seems this search box is only usable FROM the home page. This has to be bug, yes? Or is it just me? =/
