This seems like a bug to me. I just checked in a fix to svn trunk, which you can 
download and test and report back here. You can either check out of svn, or wait 
till tomorrow and grab a daily snapshot. NOTE that it will require re-indexing, 
since the index format changed between 2.4.3 and 2.5.6 (current trunk).
