(Lucene Based) Find in project (Word Search) does not work if my project directory has a period in the name

Reported by Kris Kemper | May 1st, 2011 @ 08:11 PM

My git project is named something like some-project.git. While trying out redcar, I found that the Find in Project / Word Search feature would always return no results and that the lucene index files looked miniscule in size. On a whim, I renamed my project directory to not have the .git extension, and after deleting the .redcar directory and restarting, the project would get indexed by lucene, and the find in project feature would work.

Arguably, I shouldn't be using extensions like that in my directory name, but I almost stopped considering redcar for ruby development based on not being able to use this one feature. It was non-obvious as to why it wasn't working.

I doubt that it matters but I'm using Scientific Linux 6 and redcar 0.11.
