If that were the case, the MySQL statements would fail and the script
would go into error. The changes to the SQL were not simply semantic -
they were syntactic.

WHEREAS the 2.2.9 source has the following changes:

 > LEFT JOIN (itemtypes) ON (biblioitems.itemtype = itemtypes.itemtype)

I have not tested the effect of changing a natural join (2.2.7) to a left
outer join (2.2.9) but perhaps that could have something to do with the search

Any insights most welcome.

And the big Question: is anyone on the list using 2.2.9 with MySQL 5.0

Any belief that can't stand up to objective scrutiny is hardly worth having.
