That's normal. The action for any form is always the current page,
unless someone sets $form['#action'] explicitly. This works, because
when you submit the form (your form, or the search form) back to the
same URL, drupal_get_form() gets called again for that form, which in
turn checks if the form has been submitted, and handles the submission
At one point, the search form itself did explicitly set #action to work
around a bug - http://drupal.org/node/67648 - but this was eventually
removed in favour of a different fix.
