Bug Description

Binary package hint: synaptic

1) Description: Ubuntu 9.04
2) Synaptic version : 0.62.5ubuntu3
3) When using quick search for exemple for 'aajm' (or 'abakus', or 'abcde' ,...), which is not installed, I expect that 'aajm' package appears in the results. Note that when the package is installed (for example acl, acpid) it's OK.
4) Instead there is no results of quick search. Note that normal search is working all right.
