Random thought: now that a gear icon is conventional for settings,
would it help if it changes to "[*]"?

Click the "[set context]" link, then click "racket/base bindings" in
the popup, then dismiss the popup and look for anything -- the bottom
line should now say:

  Context: racket/base bindings [clear/modify]

If that line moves to the top, then the default number of results per
page can be much longer than the screen.

The obvious place to put it is under the "Showing ... of ... matches"
line, but then it makes it look very busy, so I'm looking for a way to
avoid that clutter.
