Game Search Reset?

I noticed that if I enter the password wrong on joining a game, it not only tells me I have the wrong password, it seems to reset the search so I have to look up the game again. Is this intended?

Just the way it works I'm afraid. When a password does not matchm it just returns to game search, and by default that is from the beginning.

I took a look at the code to see if it was easy to change so that it returns you to the search page you were on instead of the beginning, but it is not simple :(
