I have columns bound to a "name" and "desc" in a table.

I've bound a SearchFieldCell to my ArrayController.  
The predicate I've coded there is:
name contains[cd] $value OR desc contains[cd] $value

It looks like this ought to work, but what happens is the matching only works against the "name" column, not the "desc" column.
I've tried parens around the two clauses and also using ||.instead of OR.  No dice.

Any ideas, or is just a bug in Cappuccino?

I would log the created predicate, which might give you a good clue about what is not working.

Thanks daboe01.

Looks like 1.1 might be soon in the offing (?), but I can grab master when this PR is merged.
