In VIM keyboard emulation mode, I want to search for a string "funcName(".

When I type "/" and then enter in the bottom "funcName(", it says "Expecting close parenthesis".

But this is a search string, so SE should not care that there is no close parenthesis. When doing this with "vi" on my console and not with SE, vi does not give such an error.

Is this a bug in SE?
