I have a web app solution which has many projects, and 5 of the projects within it contain a file named Cig.SF.ClientLib.dll.config. When I open the solution in VS 2012 (Update 3) and I type "Cig.SF.ClientLib.dll." (without the quotes) into the Search pane, there are 5 files reported; but when I open the same solution in VS 2013 and enter the same search text, sometimes only 1 file is found, sometimes more are found, but so far, never all 5.

I have tested this behavior in the same solution with other filenames, and see similar behavior - more files are found by VS 2012 than 2013. I can provide screenshots to show the condition (which I will attach to the issue), but I have not yet tried to reproduce it with new solutions/projects, due to the time and effort required.

I'm not sure if it matters, but some of the projects target .NET 2.0.

Problem still present as of today with Update 3.
Works for a while sometimes, then loses the ability to search for css, js files etc.

The original report is also closed but the problem is present even after applying update 3.

FYI This problem is still present in VS 2013 Update 2, so not sure why it was closed(?)
