New post form's URL search is broken.

I made a double post
yesterday. I searched for the URL in both the normal and printer friendly versions, using MetaFilter's new post form. In fact, if I go to the New Post form right now, and copy the link from Malor's original post
, it reports: "The URLs you entered were not found in previous threads. You might want to check the search page for duplicates, just to be sure.
Of course, I did some additional searching, like using Google's link: feature (along with site:metafilter.com) which also turned up nothing. I also tried clicking on my tags, but apparently Malor and I have different taste in tags.
Summary: It's hard to avoid posting a double.
