I am using JIRA 6.1.7.
I created a custom field and later removed it. I also removed all issues that contained data for that field.
Should that field still appear as a suggestion when I am searching for issues? I type in the first few letters of the deleted field and it shows up as a suggested field. I reindexed and it still happens.
Did you double check on the database level to see whether the field exists in the database?
select * from customfield where cfname = '<custom_field_name>'
If it still does, you might want to remove it from the database completely and run another re-indexing process again.
Let me know how it goes for you!
