Search in Branch Explorer should include Branch Comments
The filter box in the Branches view gets hits on words in the branch comments, but the Search box in Branch Explorer does not.

That's a strange reply, as in the Branches view (List view mode) all the branch comments are downloaded at once and that does not seem to be a problem! Also, when issue tracker is activated, all the issue-tracked branches will have their branch comment displayed in the tree!
I'm thinking you may have misunderstood me? I'm talking about branch-comments, not changeset-comments! (There is only one such comment per branch and that can surely not be a performance hit compared to fetching all the changesets that are rendered? We seldom write novels for branch-comments anyway... ;)
Comments are not actually downloaded to render the BrEx for performance reasons. They are only downloaded on demand when you click on a branch. This is done this way to avoid potentially downloading (and extracting) tons of data for nothing.
