Can not search on calculated field


I've just discovered a significant change in v10.... I can no longer serach on a calculated field.  I have a Parent/Child set of tables.  Within the Parent table, I have a count calculated field that simply provides a calculated value of the number of children.  Works fine, and in version 9; I could search for all parents with <5 children (for example). 


Now within Filemaker v10 (both Pro and advanced), the search will fail and report back that there are no records that meet your criteria. Even when you are viewing a record that fits that criteria.


This strikes me as a bug, has anyone else seen this behaviour?  Anyone found a way around it?
