raw_id_fields incorrectly use "search" icon for lookup/browse action.

Our designer noticed that the raw_id_fields use a "search" icon which can cause some confusion because the raw_id_field itself is not a search box, and even clicking the "search" icon doesn't necessarily give you a search box.

Is there a different icon we could use? The action is "lookup" or "browse". I might be better to simply use text if nothing else.

I don't feel very strongly about it either way, but note the documentation added in da958eb2098372c20cc3aaf905777b1a8d3144eb would likely need to be updated.

Since no one else has chimed in, I think we should close this as I don't really see a huge advantage. "search" and "lookup" are listed as synonyms in a thesaurus.
