Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I named a street, but when I search it by its name ("Maybachstrasse, Wimsheim"), it will not show up in the results. Did I miss something?

It is called "Maybachstrasse": http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=48.84511&lon=8.82273&zoom=17&layers=M

Nominatim, currently OSM's primary search engine, will take some time to update its database. As the street name was added yesterday, you should wait some time until searching for it. Also, as you can see in the street's history, xybot corrected the street name to "Maybachstraße".
