Search failure usability improvement

First, let me say that the 3.0.13 upgrade is a joy to use compared to the 2.0 version.  I love the speed increase, grid view, and edit logging.

As I play with it for the first time this morning, one small usability improvement stands out -- If I perform a search and "no cases were found that matches", please put a search box with my same string in it on that page so I can refine/change the search.  Like google.  Otherwise, I must use the Back button to try again.
