The Advanced search page at starts with a "Find bugs 	with all or any of the words" text field to enter search terms. Depending on the any/all/raw radio boxes under, search may yield tickets which contain any of the words, or only those which contain all.

The How to Search page at explains the effect of these radio boxes in its Advanced Search section. The explanation for the "Find bugs feature" is:

The main search text box for your search terms with each term being separated by a space. The searched database fields are: author email, subject, and description. Minimum term length is three characters. There are three types of searches:

    all : (default) All search terms are required.
    any : One or more (any) of the search terms may be present.
    raw : Allows full use of MySQL's FULLTEXT boolean search operators.

But in reality, the default is "any", not "all".

This only reports a discrepancy between behavior and documentation. I do not claim the documentation is to blame. I personally find it curious that the default is merely "any". I would consider changing the default behavior as a valid solution to this issue.

Test script:
This is not a behavioral bug.
