  I thought to wait for a couple of days to allow the emails to appear on 
mailman archive. But strange enough, dashboard-hacker mailing list archive 
seems to be quite outdated. Maybe the maintainers of gnome maillist list 
archives is busy attending GUADEC :)

This was my reply to your question:
"Yes. Beagle doesnot allow searching for substrings.

I am also not aware of any hacks to achieve this. However, in some
cases (like filenames) beagle tries to guess and split the word if its
composed of a number of smaller words (e.g. beagle-design-doc-v3.txt
will be broken into beagle, design, doc, v3). I can only think of
filenames where this happens and even there, arbitrary substrings
arent searchable."

Hope this message reaches you this time.
