Description of problem:
On the main page of Red Hat's Bugzilla <http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/>
there is a box named "simple search" that suggests a search on either a
bug number or a bug description can be performed.
When entering words to search for in a bug description then submitting
the search request, an error is displayed stating that only bug numbers
can be searched.
If only bug numbers can be searched, the field's text should not
suggest words can be used for searching.
Better still, make the simple search field search both bug numbers
and bug descriptions, as the text suggests.
This seems to work fine for me when entering say "bugzilla test" I get the
results I expect. For more information on how to use the quick search boxes
listed on the home page and the query page please refer to
