LightRoom - Filename sort not working / not recognizing filenames for search

I have been working with a specific folder of images and moving them into subfolders which has rendered the filename sort and filename search useless. It is as if LR is not recognizing the filenames of the images (the names have not been changed, just the location has been changed)

I copied and pasted a filename into the search box and it still returned No Match

I tried to sort the folder based on filename and a few random files are just thrown all over in the sort. These particular files have multiple file types (ie NEF, JPG, PSD) and they aren't grouped together. It is also only a handful of the files - the rest are fine. What am I missing here??? I seem to really run into problems when I start creating sub folders within LR and moving files around - something I need to do often.

seems like there is a bug - when I select more than 1 folder the file name sort mucks up and the images are shown in almost ascending/descending order but not quite.
