The search in Finder is not displaying all of the matching files.

 

Test Case:

 

I have a folder with the following 6 files in it.

 

> ls ~/tmp/test

123.txt  23.txt   3.txt    34.txt   345.txt  567.txt

 

If I point Finder to this folder  6 files are displayed.  If I enter "3" in the Search Dialog, it shows 3 files: 3.txt, 34.txt and 345.txt.  23.txt and 123.txt are not shown.  IMHO the correct result is to show all files that have a 3 in them, 5 files.

 

I'm pretty confident that SL did not behave like this...

 

I tweaked the Finder Prefs, but could not get the behavior I expected.
