Inaccuracies in Calibre search results

Hi there,

Without exception, when I type a book title or an author in the search bar, Calibre includes results that don’t match the search.

Why is this happening, and is there any way to fix it?

Preferences -> Searching: do you have Limit the searched metadata checked? I have title, author and series in the box where the searched columns are specified; you probably have this unchecked and so Calibre searches everything, not only title/author.
