[Koha] Searching problem

Hello All,

I am having trouble searching some of the records in the database having a
colon ":" punctuation mark in the titles such as "Marx at the Margins: On
Nationalism, Ethnicity, and Non-Western Societies", "Bhutan: new pathways
to growth", "Dayananda Sarasvati: his life and ideas", etc. However, I
could search these records without typing a colon punctuation mark during
the search just like "Bhutan new pathways to growth", "Dayananda Sarasvati
his life and ideas". The complete title is in the 245a tag field without
using remainder of the title. What could be the problem? I have rebuilt the
index by issuing koha-rebuild-zebra -f -v <instance> twice but some of the
titles mentioned above are still not searchable using full title including
colon punctuation mark. I'd appreciate if anyone in the list could share
the solution to this issue. Thank you.
