Summary: FileSearch returns app.exe with path when Id not specified

Initial Comment:
The following would appear to follow the documentation
rules on FileSearch as it relates to not using the Id
in the FileSearch to return the parent directory rather
than the full path to the file.

      <Property Id='INSTALLDIR'>
        <DirectorySearch Id='INSTALLDIR' Depth='999'>
          <FileSearch Name='app.exe' />
        </DirectorySearch>
      </Property>

However ... with or without the Id specified in the
FileSearch the "app.exe" is returned in INSTALLDIR.

The post as a bug was initiated after reading the wix user
list where the following was posted but nobody ever followed
up by posting a bug (at least that I saw):

 There is likely just a bug in here somewhere.  The
AppSearch stuff is really
 complicated in certain and I don"t think we have it all
worked out yet.
 Feel free to open a bug and someone (maybe you? <smile/>)
will look into it
 and see what is going wrong.

I think this is the correct behavior.

Please try to post issues to the wix-users mailing list
before opening a bug as many issues turn out to be due to
unclear documenation (doc bugs), rather than a problem with
the actual tools.
