For Evince we are sharing the eggfindbar  with Epiphany, you might want to take a look at that code, it doesn't have that close button. Here's  a screenshot of what searching in Evince looks like.
I don't know that having two search bars would necessarily be confusing for people in the single message view. Of course in the preview pane I agree you might want to do something different.

Performance could be a problem, if you wanted to have a type-as-you-go search, which presumably you do. Currently for the match highlighting (for 'all matches', not the 'current match'), we have to re-render the entire message. That feature would probably have to be removed for the interactive search (i think we can still have it for the message list search value).

I have implemented firefox style search bar in evolution. I have attached a screenshot of that. Of course it works well :- ) (Except the previous button). It also inherits the old issues like, 'doesnt know what to do when preview pane is off' sort of problems.
I want your opinon on this, so that i can improve further and put it in.
