In GNOME 3.4, the recent documents search provider which was available
in 3.2 was removed and replaced by documents search, which is a subset
of tracker's search and shows only documents. Full desktop search is
coming back in 3.6 thanks to the nautilus search provider (which can
use tracker or do a recursive filename search).
