A funny bug on my.msn.com

Here is the Bing search box on my.msn.com (Note the “Search the web” watermark)

When you click Search, the watermark is passed to Bing as search phrase. I’m pretty sure this is a bug.

Actually, Google search results for “Search the web” are very similar, but Google at least lists itself at the 6th place.
