Either this is fixed in Harmony or there are more details to the situation. The simple minded tests I made for searching an 800 page file for a pattern that didn''t exist in it (for devices {CORE} and a leaf IFS) both worked.'
I''ve changed Status': ← Incomplete pending more details or verification that the problem is fixed in Harmony. '
