Just to note that on tablets, my fat fingers quite frequently cause me to log out when I'm trying to do a search. Those buttons are right next to each other. Quite frustrating...

That one hasn't been an issue for me. The one on the left below the link to you profile gets me sometimes. Those being text links instead of buttons seems to be my issue. Depending on the tablet try using the zoom feature before pressing the button.

Don't move the buttons, just add a confirmation box. "Are you sure you want to logout?" I too have accidentally logged out many times because of this issue.

Hitting "Enter" after you type in your search words will start the search.

I realise that this is related to tablets, but as I don't have one, maybe they don't work that way, but that just seems stupid to me.

It's not just search. An even worse problem is when you want to look at your own profile. The link for your username and [Log Out] are right on top of each other.

On iOS, a Go button appears on the keyboard itself, so you are correct that the user could use that instead of the one in the page. I don't know about Android or other tablets, however.

That's definitely an issue.
Bummer for the tablet users.

Same here. I use my iphone all the time, can't say I've ever accidentally logged out.
