Odd problem with MATE Search Tool

I just installed SciTE text editor from the repository.
The default font size was too small so I went looking for the appropriate properties file.

I entered "scite" in the "Name contains:" box and chose "Filesystem" in the "Look in folder:" box.

Got no hits.
Doing a reboot had no effect.
Doing a manual browse found the is a /etc/scite directory.
To check the tools functionality I searched for "python" getting many hits [including /etc/python].

What's happening?
