The "stop sync and remove all synced data" trick worked for me. Unfortunately the steps have changed slightly and it is now "Disconnect Google Account" > choose YES to remove all data.

Just figured out I simply did not wait long enough. It seems like after joining the domain the search function is not as fast as before. It takes 4 - 6 seconds to find more items and you don't see that the searching process has not finished yet.

There's no way to control when indexing will occur but Windows is usually quite clever about not overloading your system while you're using it. Once the initial index is finished the overhead should be minimal. There are other search products that do allow you to specify when an index is built but I can't think of any that are free.
