If ACTIONSEARCH tag is used on a page without also including use of ACTION tag, the javascript for the plugin is not included in the rendered page. As a result, the status dropdown box is not active and can't be used to update action status as expected.

It appears that because ACTIONSEARCH is registered as a handler, it gets resolved before the common tags handler runs so the code in the common routine to add the css and javascript headers does not get executed. Looks like moving the addToHead calls from the common tags handler into the lazy init routine would resolve the problem.
