It is not insensitive at all (individual search) and there is not possibility to change it (check-box).
At least a note about the issue on the search page would be helpful.

Thanks colliar

The problem that search is not accent insensitive is getting worse and worse as there is more tickets and pages and also people reporting/writing there. Some people uses accents, others don't use it, so we are unable to find what we want, which renders trac almost impossible to use (that leads to a lot of duplicates, people cannot find information etc.). All major search engines are accent insensitive so everyone is used to it.
