Using a limit filter of either:



        ~f Wayne

works as expected for me. What is your "simple_search" variable set to?
If it's not "~f %s | ~s %s" then maybe your .muttrc is messed up or
you've had finger troubles? Use the "enter command" mutt command -
default is colon - to enter command mode and type the command "set
simple_search" to see the current setting.
