Lucene wildcards seem to not work

I have a user:
If I submit this Lucene search via the dashboard:
I get my user

If I submit this Lucen search via the dashboard:
I get nothing

What gives?

To my knowledge the wildcard would be only supported when the search is run on an individual term and not for phrases. I also think that what would be considered individual terms would depend on the analyzer, but for email I think you would get the following terms:

  • dan.rumney
  • guardian

So searching for the phrase (phrases use quotes) "" would get that user as the phrase/sequence matches while the phrase search "dan.rumney+*" would only match if you had a user with email like where both terms in the search appear in the expected sequence.
