User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; MyIE2; Tablet PC 1.7; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; InfoPath.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727)
Build Identifier: 2.0.0.14 (20080421)

After saving a search folder, if I include a field for which the search string is empty, the search update fails.  If I remove that field, the search succeeds.

This might seem minor, but I would like to use a persistent search folder with all the most common fields available for quick entry.  But, if I can't leave any blank, then I have to delete the fields I'm not using at the moment, thus defeating the purpose.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do an advanced search.
2. Save to search folder.
3. Do "Properties..." on the search folder.
4. Add a new field to search on; e.g., "body".
5. Leave the search string blank (or make sure there's nothing entered.
6. Hit OK.


Actual Results:  
The search matches everything or nothing in the folder.

Expected Results:  
The search should match exactly what it matched before.
