Description: Entering any string to the filter box does not update the list of passwords, certificates, etc. Pressing enter after typing the string doesn't work either. The list remains unchanged.

Additional info:
* seahorse: 3.20.0+288+gce2340dc-1
* gtk3: 3.22.30-1

Using i3 as WM.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open seahorse
2. Select a password or certificate list
3. Type something in the filter box
4. Notice that the list remains unchanged.

I have compiled seahorse from source (,
commit 64031db2, and the filter functionality works as expected.
This task depends upon

I'm having the same problem with the same version of seahorse and gtk3, although I'm using gnome-shell 3.28.3+7+g721ce5403-1 instead of i3.

I haven't compiled seahorse from source to test, but I can verify typing into the search/filter input doesn't have any effect. I've also tried hitting enter, but that doesn't do anything either.

Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help debug.

I've looked into this further and it turns out that this is a known bug that was resolved in newer versions of Seahorse. I've flagged the package as out-of-date with the following message:

> This package is using an arbitrary commit[0] rather than a released version, which means that we get the negatives of a non-stable release (e.g. the filter bug[1]) with no benefits. I think we should either revert back to the last stable version or stay up-to-date with new unstable versions[2], but I don't think we should remain in limbo at an arbitrary commit with open bugs.
