When attempting to find all in fields across the whole solution, often times no results are returned even when knowing there should be results found.

When performing a search, these are the results:

Find all "class", Find Results 1, Entire Solution, "*.*"
  Matching lines: 0    Matching files: 0    Total files searched: 441
  Find was stopped in progress.

However I can call this a second and third time and the total files search will change.  Also there are far more then 441 files in my whole solution, and the world "class" is definitely a work that should be found in those files.  Not sure why the find was stopped in progress as well as I am not doing another find or stopping it on purpose.

If I shut down ALL instances of VS2012 and start again, I can get find results correctly again, for a limited time, and then the same behavior occurs.
