SharePoint 2010 Search Web Service returns "Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation"

Turns out that the search service has problems when anonymous authetication is on. I have a custom tool to test my search, that connects to the search service and performs queries. Every time I tried to query the service I got this error.

I could not easily disable anonymous authetication on my server because we used it for some sites.

This article helped me to find a solution: The SharePoint Search Service and Anonymous Access (Trinkit Blog)
