Searching for "Errno::EXDEV:" results in an "Application Error."
(Without quotes of course.)

This page comes up:

Since the interface for search is unlike any other, I at first assumed
the whole thing was broken, but then I realized that a colon was perhaps
a special character.

Not sure if this is the place to post this.

":" is a special character that allows searching in specific fields:
subject:(perl AND python)

Searching just for "Errno::EXDEV" works fine.

I still have to add documentation for the search options.
