Description dave evartt 2007-01-21 16:00:08 UTC
I did a search today and got different results based on the capilization of the
words I used.

Did a search of 'Assisted Living' and got a 'page needs to be built' (not
literal) message.
But when I did a search on 'assisted living' and 'Assisted living', I got what i
was looking for.

This suggests that case normalization is broken.

A regular search would not provide different results; only an exact-title match
search, and that's due to the current database structure.
