Really?  I checked it and see no problems

Sorry, a clarification: it doesn't work on directories.

Which seems to be a conscious choice because with how dired-do-search and dired-do-query-replace-regexp are implementented, it would take a lot of time even when there are not too many files in such a directory. It has to copy each file to the local machine before doing the search.

dired-do-find-regexp and dired-do-find-regexp-and-replace handle directories just fine, however.
