For Call number search to return results in Inventory, need to truncate even when searching on exact value

    Description

      Steps to reproduce

      1. Go to Inventory
      2. In Holdins segment > Call number, eye readable, search for an exact call number (call number proper, without prefix/suffix) that you know is assigned to at least one holding in Inventory.

      Expected result

      The search returns a list of either
      a) holdings with this exact call number, ie 711.163
      b) holdings with this partial call number, eg 711.163(10)

      I am not sure which of these two to expect – but would definitely like to be able to perform an exact search.

      Actual result

      The search returns no results, although I know there are holdings that should match the query.

      In order for the search to return holdings with the exact call number, I need to add a truncation asterisk to the search (which gives me expected result b). This is quite confusing.
