Probably I should add a small clarification to my response:
As far as I'm concerned, when you've left the search engine,
you've left the search engine. I actually dislike the "search"
feature in IE, for this very reason. The IE search "frame" hangs
around, even when I've left the search "context". To me, if I am
in a page that is one of the results of a search, if I want to do
a new search, the back button is the *right* way. Or directly
enter the url for google. (Or rather, enter the very beginning
of this url- my browser auto-completes...)

To me, the help desk is a bit different. "Results" in the help
desk should be like "results" in the search engine. And I mean
the final search results, not just the page that tells me about 
"hits" in the teaching languages + mzscheme. Within your own
domain, there really is no reason that the "search box" header
(and possibly footer) can't be added to all of these pages.
