While testing, I found if I deleted the last asset of a component that I had searched, I was returned to the search list however the component was still there.
If you manually enter the component, it has no assets.
If you refresh the search again, the component disappears.
While I was looking to see if this was filed (seemed familiar), I noticed browse does NOT act the same way. Thus I am filing a bug, as I had suspsected it might be intentional, but cannot rationalize why Search would work this way and Browse not (Browse works as I expected).
Marking minor since the workaround is to refresh.
