Ticket #4080 defect closed fixed
If the IMAP4 server receives a SEARCH command with an illegal term, it will raise an unhandled error and never respond to the client

This is because search is implemented with dynamic dispatch but without considering the case where there is no search_ method corresponding to the query term.
This is related to #1977 which encountered the problem when it misinterpreted a message sequence set as an illegal term.
