Search not working properly

Tried to do a search on the JSP & Servlet forum only and received results back from all the forums. I am assuming this is a UBB problem so I'm going out to infopop.com to see what I can find out.

OK,
Now I'm not so sure this is a UBB problem. I'm using UBB on a project at work and ran some forum specific searches on the site we are maintaining/developing. They all worked correctly.
Anyone have any ideas on this?

I'm afraid search is mildly screwed at the moment. You'll fins that your search didn't actually return all hits from all threads, just some which weren't from the thread you asked for. You would probably get more hits from an "all threads" search.
This should be fixed on the next software upgrade.

I may have a later version at work since we just got it a few weeks ago. We have had to change a few things to make it work as we need it to.
Noticed that the SearchIn and ForumChoice params being passed to search.cgi are set to ALL. Maybe someone can look at where this is happening and hack a fix?
