search question gui vs command line

Hi,

I did a little bit of searching (not exhaustively) and couldn't find a similar thread, so I apologize if this has been asked/answered already.

I've been using calibre for quite a while, but recently I noticed something weird, at least to my understanding. It has to do with searches:

if I (for example) use the gui and put in the following search criteria:

series: Green Lantern Vol 3
series index: 38

the search yields 1 result, Green Lantern Vol 3 #38

when I use the command line, and execute:

calibredb search series:"Green Lantern Vol 3" series_index:"38"

it yields 5 results:

Green Lantern Corps Vol 2 #38
Green Lantern Vol 1 #38
Green Lantern Vol 2 #38
Green Lantern Vol 3 #38
Green Lantern Vol 4 #38

Curious minds wonder why the difference in search result/behaviour, and more importantly, how I can make the command line behave the same way as the gui

Thanks in advance!
