Description Nicole C. Engard 2011-01-22 19:38:18 UTC
When searching for the title, "Mama, do you love me?" there are no results, but
if you search "Mama, do you love me" with no "?" you get all results.

Let me clarify, you can use it is it's a keyword search, but if it's a keyword search with a limit it appears to break.

in fact, the character '?' is truncate if QueryAutoTruncate='automatically', else this patch perform a good search : '?' doesn't break and returns all results.
