I can't explain the behaviour but here it is.

Try to find the following (existing) files on using the standard search.
Testnameforsearch foo.png
Funkadelia test name.png

linked here:

They are not found. Not even Iuftrekdjhlsfbhs.png which doesn't include stop words.

Which search engine does your wiki use? Note that on Wikimeadia it could take some time before things are indexed.
