It is using +gopher+ when you request some resource. When "search" is just the value "+", +"!", "$" or empty, geomyidae will display a gopher+ redirect instead of invoking the +script. Be careful to design your search script so the user is unlikely to +enter those values. The designers of gopher+ did not think of classic gopher +to survive.
