Find is misbehaving in investment accounts

Anyone else see the Find operation going haywire in investment accounts?
I wanted to find all transactions for securities with "div" in their names.
First, Q wanted me to specify a new security when I tabbed out of the search string field - wrong.
When the search completed, I had lots of results with "div" in the transaction, but not in the security name - wrong again.

    Just tried your exact same search in an investment account.
    It seemed to work - after a fashion;
    Returned securities with "div" in Security field - from all investment accounts,
    Returned some transactions with blank Security/Payee field from cash accounts. ???

    Got these results selecting "Find All" button.
    Got nothing using the "Find" button.

    Nothing resembling your results above.

    I don't recall, is there a search/filter in the Security List? If not, perhaps there should be.

    Sorry, I should have been more specific; I used the Find All button in the Find dialog. When I use the Find button, it works OK, finding 1 transaction at a time with "div" in the security name within the currently open investment register.

    Yes, there's a filter in the security list and it works properly. But in my OP, I was searching for transactions.
