This bug is an Auctioneer issue, because Auctioneer messed up how the default AH events work.
If you enable the Auctioneer option you described, Auctioneer forces 2x AUCTION_HOUSE_CLOSED _before_ AUCTION_HOUSE_SHOW if you open the AH the first time after a login. This is very very bad.

Hey, Chilius & Krellmax. Sorry for the delay, but I simply can not reproduce the errors you posted, anyway, I may revert some changes. (sorry, but I was mainly in a CharScanner-code-tunnel the last weeks...;)
Doesnt seem to be working what am I doing wrong? Put category and item in as instructed then go back to auction window and search used Obsidium Ore and when try to use it search does not happen I just get a random search?
Do you really set up your search in the way you want? name/rarity/lvl/filter? Can you give me an example please?
AHsearch is working with every addon that is using the default Auction House Interface. AHsearch is not changing the default Auction House Interface/lists/functions/whatever in any way! (expect: AHsearch adds a little AHsearchButton to the right side of your searchfield [AuctionFrameBrowse]...but this does not harm anything)!
I do not use Auctioneer. And I do not like to install 16 addons to get 1 addon. The last time I tested AHsearch with Auctioneer there was no problem.
One little request: I would like to prepare for Cata and move some saved searches to other categories, however I don't find a way to move a search. Would you mind pointing me in the right direction or is it intended to delete a search in one category and make a new one in another with the same parameters?
you found it :( i removed the move option because it requires some major time-consuming code updates, but i will add it again in the next version. (btw: you do not need to change anything for cata, but okay a move option is nice to have...)
You are right. I removed the EditBox Clear Button from all EditBoxes (they are useless, not intuitive and can lead to wrong assumptions).

Hey kunda, for some reason I can't create category anymore. The one that are saved are still there but when I try to create a new one, the addon appear to accept my entries and there is no error but once I've set the category, nothing appears in the list.
scrollframe? do you scroll down (or up)?
sorry, i have no idea. i created, renamed, changed and deleted hundreds of categories and search queries while making this addon, but i never seen such a behavior. can you please give me more information (may be a step-by-step instruction), so that i can reproduce this. thanks.
Is there a way to search for Huge Citrine and not get all the cut gems?
No. AHsearch is a simple and fast realtime search tool, that simply saves search queries (all settings you can set up with the default AH GUI) and provides a GUI to easily access them and change them. AHsearch can only do things you can do with the original AH GUI.
In most cases it helps to specify the search by changing rarity/filter/lvl or so...'Huge Citrine' is an example where such settings can not help, because the raw material has exactly the same characteristics as the crafted end-product (same rarity, same filter, same lvl, ...).
An exact name search requires an AH scan and than a complete rebuild of the default AH browse list to show such results.
This is slow, not realtime and not what I want.
If you need an exact name search you must use an addon that scans the AH.
True, but different versions just confuses the majority of all users, me too. This and error messages about missing libraries are the main reasons why I just want one most recent version of AHsearch. I will remove Dewdrop-2.0 and AceLibrary sometime, if I have enough time to completely rewrite it :)
The last time I used Auctioneer (long ago, because I hate the dozen addons that come with it, the lag, the bugs, the... aahhhhhh never ever again) AHsearch worked very well with it. Auctioneer is mostly changing the whole Auction House Interface (to not say makes a real mess with it ;) ). AHsearch works with the original ingame Auction House. It's the fault of Auctioneer if AHsearch is not working, sorry.
No. Because to make a exact name search, it's necessary to rebuild the whole auction list that the client gets from the server. AHsearch uses only the ingame AH search possibilites. AHsearch is not changing anything at the Auction House UI (expect: one Button is added).
