according to that article putting "comment:thing" in the search field should yield that file as a result which it doesn't and "filename:thing" doesn't work either only "filename:thing.jpg" which I feel is totally useless! now, maybe I'm missing something fundamental here, but this search feature is supposed to be intuitive and I'm starting to find it anything but. If I wanted a fancy search language I'd stick with grep on the command line.
i had to change the spotlight comments... save them... open the info panel back up... change the comments back... save again
before i did that mdls wasn't reporting any comments for the file... after... it did.
it looks like there's a major bug here, where the comments are being reindex if they were migrated from another machine. guess who'll be filing a bug report?
thanks for the help, it pointed me in a better direction.
