The --search option filters within --limit results, not the other way
around. Specifically, if you set --limit to 30, you'll get 30 results;
then --search will return only the results that match from within those 30.

If I recall correctly, --search is completely client-side (but I may be
wrong ... I haven't checked that code recently).
