I think this happening by default. When you search for a term, it will
search for that term in the file's path as well. So if you store a file
named X under a file named Y, and then search for the term "Y", the file
named X will come up even though Y is no where in its content or name. It
works most of the time, but the behavior seems a bit unpredictable.

I really want to search for terms in the path name as well.
