Text search for filters

I've been asked to request a "Containing text:" field for the filters.  Users would like to be able to combine regular filters with Search so that they could view, say, all bugs in a certain project with "You idiot!" in the text.

Everyone understands (or at least assumes) that this would affect performance.

Just for the records, I also want this feature, because sometimes you want to enchance a search and it is being hard without having a 'text search' in filters.

+1 also! this would solve a lot of our problems

Put me on the list of people that would like to see this added...or suggest a work around for me -

We'd like a way to track issues per customer.  We have been putting the customer name in the title, which made for easy reporting with clearquest.  Now, we can't do that.  Can'd add the customer name in the "computer" field either - or rather - we can, but we can't search by it.

Without custom fields, is there another way we can track which issues come from which customers?

We'll definitely consider this for a future version, I agree that this is lacking from FogBUGZ.
