And it remains buggy. Searching for the tag "d" does not reveal the existence of the tag. I mean here: http://stackoverflow.com/tags This problem has been reported, but the last response I saw was "searching is a very hard problem". Okaaaay. Searching for a single letter word is a real head-scratcher there. Let me know if you'd like my help rounding up a few PhDs to help out on that one. --bb

Ah, so it wasn't just me.

Especially since there are only a few thousand tags.

And it works if you search for "c".

 I think it works for C because it shows the top 100 or so tags that
 contain the search term, and C is in the top 100.  D unfortunately
 isn't in the top 100 of tags containing the letter D.  Clearly it
 should just always show an exact match if one exists.

I submitted another bug report on it.

The weird thing is I cannot search for the d tag. It never shows up in the results list.
