namepartdupe: Results Are Vanishing?

namepartdupe: Results Are Vanishing?

Not sure just what is going on?

Had a search: sandy private !.lnk

Then I added a namepartdupe: to it.

> sandy private !.lnk namepartdupe:

It came up with 3 files:

sandy private.txt
sandy private.doc
sandy private beaches oceanfront.html

First thing I noticed is that the highlighting was odd.
sandy private.txt was highlighted as expected, but
sandy private.doc was not?

I wanted to deal with those two files separately, so opened a new Everything window, &, &, not sure... & also went on to something else, but when I came back to the original window: sandy private !.lnk namepartdupe:, only one of the "sandy private.*" files displayed (along with sandy private beaches oceanfront.html) , yet all 3 still existed.

So then I tried the same search in a new Everything window.
Same, just the two.

Then i created a new file, "sandy private new.txt", & that did show up.

And then I've been trying to figure out just what is going on, but not making heads or tail on it.

But I can say, results do seem to be disappearing.

Thanks for the detailed bug report.

There was an issue where namepartdupe: was not finding duplicated name parts at all.

Should be fixed in 781b:

When the second to last dupe is deleted, the last remaining name part dupe will not be highlighted. Highlighting is real-time, the result list for namepartdupe: is not.
