Well, guess what. The "problem" is back! But, not really. If you put in a search word at the beginning and search all 36K + packages, you'll have to wait, and wait!
Finally, it appears (if it's there). I think late last night, the net traffic was very much less than right now. I notice if you find the package, the next time you try, it's much faster. If there was a rotating something while it's searching, that would help.
