Is this what most of you would classify as a bug?

Using the search facility in vtiger, if you search for the name of a 
person using both first & last names it fails to find a match.


In the demo data there is a lead who is called Patricia Johnson.

In the search tool If you search for "Patricia" *or* "Johnson" then it's 

However, if you search for "Patricia Johnson" it fails to find a match.

To be honest I was pretty amazed by this. I kind of understand why it is 
the case, but surely, when you have a large database, searching for 
combinations of fields would be fairly common practice?

Should this go on Track? I might try and create a patch before 
submitting it. But without looking at the code yet am not sure how much 
work this would entail to fix.
