Is there any way when running a concordance search to include all the TMs in the search, not just the currently active TM? Wordfast does this and it's immensely useful when you can recall that you translated a certain phrase in the past but can't remember where and it wasn't in the current TM.

I think that Concordance will show results of any memory you have enabled in the Translation Memories pane. The segments you produce are only stored in the "Working" memory (and the "Master" memory if you have a separate one, when you confirm the files as delivered), but all enabled memories are used in the translation result search and the concordance.

Yes, there is. Use TMLookup icon_wink.gifhttp://www.farkastranslations.com/tmlookup.php (open source + free)

I can currently search through a huge folder of TMXs totalling 30 million TUs in TMLookup, and most searches take no more than 1–2 seconds! There is no way to do this in memoQ, or any other CAT tool for that matter (and believe me, I've tried).
