missing hits in Global Search

The Help for the Main Window says:

: 2. You can search the database by typing a text string in the Text Search
: box (first click on it with the left button to make it yellow). This will
: find all the objects in the database which contain the search text. More
: precisely, we find all objects whose name contains the search string, all
: objects that refer to this object, and all objects containing searchable
: Text (or other X class data) containing the search string.

In ace4_6 the Global Search box doesn't find objects that refer to the 
object.  E.g. a search for "pgm-1" fails to find the object

Germplasm : "LA2437"
Gene "pgm-1"

if the Gene field is of type ?Gene.

Is this an intentional change in ace4_6?  I liked it better the way the
Help describes.
