I've commented out $wgVectorUseSimpleSearch in wiki-devel/LocalSettings.php.
Does http://wiki-devel.sugarlabs.org with the Vector skin provide the
behavior you desire?

I think Josh hardcoded ShikiWiki.php to match the single button search

The new search is consider a usability feature for Vector by the Usability
Initiative, but I don't see that we are getting search suggestions or other
