OK I just tried something for you -

Created a file called "L 28830.TXT". Typed 28830 in search bar. Worked like a charm. Renamed file by removing the space "L28830.TXT". Doesn't show up anymore in search with 28830. Typed in *28830 in search bar and "L28830" was returned.

Hypothesis is what you think is a space is not ACSII 0x20. It is probably unprintable like a TAB 0x09 and being treated as a regular ASCII character in the search. Did a program or a person name these files?
