I'm not sure if this a fix, if it's not let's just keep this in mind for 

I notice that the templates have two search boxes for articles and 
comments (as the current site does). Last I knew, the only reason for 
having this was some database restriction.

It would be amazing if we could merge the searchboxes into one as part 
of the migration (were this a quick thing to deal with). It's a bad 
solution in terms of usability, and has even been signaled out books as 
an example of how not to implement search interfaces.
