Bug Description

I prefer authors written like "Arthur Miller". Importing ebooks these are often written as "Miller, Arthur". Up to version 5.41 I could search for "," to find these for me misspelled names. Also it is not possible any more to find abbreviated first names of authors with "." to replace them by complete names.

If you dont like it turn it off in Preferences->Searching or use regular
expression based searching instead.
