This is an unclear setting in Thunderbird: The server side search is an 
(almost) standard feature of IMAP mail servers. The search offers you to 
select basically every mailbox and newsgroup you have, but it isn't 
disabled when you only select newsgroups. It actually isn't even 
disabled if an IMAP server does not offer this feature, or even if you 
have only (local) POP3 mailboxes to search.

PS: Sorry for the email! Another insane feature of TB is the reply 
button actually sending emails and the user having to use the followup 
button. A "feature" added a few versions ago and extremely annoying 
because it really isn't appropriate for a newsreader.
