cant search numbers

Idea

so this worked as recently as a few weeks ago. 

search is NOT working for numbers within a note 

example 

1/12/1966

i could search for this in a note up until about three weeks ago... now this search does not work. 

i have many notes with dates like this in them and i need to find the note by a specific date such as that one

this has worked for YEARS and ALL OF A SUDDEN its NOT WORKING 

i can search by words 

this is really ridiculous.  why is this not working any longer

The Evernote search indexing excludes special characters, except for _ 
        Punctuation is used to split the input query and document into words, but it is ignored for text matching.
In your example,  / would be dropped, and the search is for text 1 and 12 and 1966

My standard for dates is yyyy_mm_dd  
- search works
- sort works (note: 2 digit month and day)
- no ambiguity between month and day

For documentation, see    Evernote Search Grammar
