I am there with you. I have however figured out a way to filter my results. Two scenarios. First, if you navigate to one of the sections, like this general discussions, of the 4.x+ forums and put in your search, you get the results and on the left is a link to search "Sitefinity Forums". This will broaden the results to all forums under the 4.x+ sections. Second approach, which really is what the link does from the first option, is to submit your search and then in the address bar, after the results show, append the following parameter to the end of the url: &fid=531.
The Sitefinity 4.x+ forum ID is 531 and passing this in will filter your search to just this forum. Just something I picked up a while back and does help until the forum allows for better filtering.
