I have to agree that with the old search any results just didn't make any sense. I always have a hard time remembering what should search for (thinking about keywords) and sometimes they're just near matches, which completely bunks the results.
I've found that with the new search (left bar that came with overhaul that they've been doing recently), it actually works as I'd expect it to. I'm guessing they updated the search algorithm.
