As a news blog, we have a ‘Torontoist’ user with the same name as the site to whom we sometimes assign posts. A lot of our contributors also have e-mail addresses with the blog’s name, either as addresses with our domain or as GMail plus sign addresses. Because search_authors only finds the first 10 matches to terms, our group user wouldn’t be found by the AJAX search, and we’d actually get no results.
On line 890, I upped ‘number’ to 1000 which solved the problem for us, but might not for blogs with more user accounts.
