[theme-reviewers] Befuddled by the theme search engine

Bug in the API search. Looking for a solution now.

But, the basic problem is that the theme had zero ratings. This
doesn't normally happen, theme authors almost always give at least
their own themes a 5 star rating, so I guess nobody had ever noticed
it before.
