Searching for hints on a room that the forum doesn't know if you have seen will tell you if there is a room there. It will not prompt you to open a thread for a room that isn't there, thereby giving away if there is a room in that location. Maybe there is no fix for it.

There was some discussion on that possibility (and other ones) a few years ago before the search was updated: /viewtopic.php?TopicID=20139

I think it's a feature, not a bug -- if you're stuck trying to find a secret then it gives you a tool which you can use to hunt around, but it doesn't give anything away unless you explicitly go looking.
