What exactly is full text search and what does it have to do with Seam? Are you referring to Hibernate Search (Lucene)??
Good point, I am referring to Lucene and the FullTextEntityManager. Should I bring this up with the Hibernate team? I guess Hibernate search is integrated and documented within Seam so that's why I posted here, but it may not be the right place.
It's just a very strange behavior.
