Natsearch fails after update of NatSkinPlugin and NatEditPlugin

Updated the following components to latest versions:

NatEditPlugin (v4.20, $Rev: 5550 (2009-11-17) $):
NatSkinPlugin (3.95, $Rev: 5563 (2009-11-17) $):

After than, the combo Search/GO field in the upper right fails

URL is:


Nothing in either Apache or Foswiki log.

Search fields on WebHome continue to work with the URL:


Comparing the contents of /bin/natsearch, the previous working version concluded with

use Foswiki::UI;
use Foswiki::Plugins::NatSkinPlugin::Search; Foswiki::UI::run();
&Foswiki::Plugins::NatSkinPlugin::Search::searchCgi, 'natsearch' => 1);

The new version is:

use Foswiki ();
use Foswiki::UI ();

Reverting the file appears to fix the search, but I presume there might have been intent there.

Fails how? What error do you get? There was a problem with execute bit not being set properly on /bin/natsearch script. Tasks.Item8368 might be related, but perhaps there is a different problem here.

The latest version of NatSkin / NatSkinPlugin have got a Config.spec of its own that will add the needed switchboard configuration to lib/LocalSite.cfg if you go through a configure + save loop at least once.
