Deleted posts can appear in search

How often does the search engine update?

I'm asking since we had a user whose posts I had to delete, and subsequently, I also deleted my own posts that answered his.
Some of these posts, while deleted, still appear in searches.

Is this just because the search index hasn't updated yet, or may there be a bug here?

    I'm thinking there might be a bug here — the search index should update pretty fast.

    What if you link to the page and write a bit detailed step by step what happened? Then I could look at that page, as superadmin (if ok with you?) and create a similar page and do the same things, and try to reproduce, & add an end-to-end test.

    I think it'd be good if there was a checkbox, so staff could choose if they want to find deleted posts or not, when searching.

    (Although / if there's a bug, only you can search & find those deleted posts, because you're admin.)
