Hey Pedro, i did the quick search 'first name' 'last name' > it works! Quick search with 'subject' > it works! Quick search with 'first name' 'last name' and 'subject' > no hit!
Here's the CAMEL_DEBUG=all evolution >& evo.log

Is this useful, or what should i do?

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance.

Really, strictly speaking this is not a bug. The quick search bar if you click on the magnifying glass says 'Subject or Addresses contains', and if you go to 'Advanced Search' you'll see this rule is defined as 'Any of the Subject, Sender and Recipient' contain the *whole* specified string. This is never going to be the case if you use keywords from both the Sender and the Subject. Unless I've misunderstood your definition of the problem. It would be good to get some screenshots showing where you entered the terms and which results you did and didn't get.
