[isabelle-dev] Abbreviations and find_theorems

Hi all,

when searching for theorems, abbreviations may behave surprisingly:

	find_theorems "odd _" -- ‹considerable results›

	find_theorems "odd" -- ‹no results›

I guess this is due to abbreviation expansion which then yields

	find_theorems "λa. odd a" -- ‹no results›

So, this is formally correct but nevertheless IMHO inconventiently.  May
naive expectation is that when I am searching for a particular
operations I do not that to think about such technical detail.

What do others think?

This refers to 059ba950a657.
