Sometimes searching "file changes" returns seemingly non-relevant results.

I've noticed that often when I use the search toolbar to search for a file via "file changes", I get results that don't have the file in the commit. Does anyone know why this occurs?

It is probably finding files which contain the string/file name you are searching for. e.g. if you search for the name of a a header file in C++ code, you would find all .cpp files using the header.

Hrmm, yes must be. Some of the strings I've tried searching didn't seem to be included in the result files in any form, but if no one else is experiencing this, I may have missed something. I'll have a second look in more detail if it comes up again. Thanks.
