Same as kdev3, it's edit->find in files, or ctrl+alt+f.  if you can't see it, 
your plugin loading is broken and you should look into why your syscoa can't 
see them.

We're working hard on the quick open stuff.  It doesn't work across the whole

View-> add toolview -> file system.  Yes, I think our new tool view management 
system is a problem, it's too hidden and with inadequate defaults.

Will improve much with persistent duchain and other optimisations, come back 
after SoC (that is, I presume you were already using svn head?)
