jQuery Datatables - column search causing auto-width to stop working?

Hello, I'm using the jQuery Datatables plugin.  I've implemented individual column searching/filtering using this example:

Normally, the columns are intelligently sized based on the data in the column.  However, I've noticed that when the column searching is implemented, the column width auto-sizing stops working. Instead, each column has the same width (e.g. if there are 5 columns, each is then 20%).

Has anyone encountered this, and know of a way to get the "intelligent" column auto-sizing to work with the .search()?
I had this issue once with an *old* version of datatables. are you using the latest version?
