I can corroborate your experience here. Search for filename "*.java" and
get hits. View one of those .java files, copy a string out of it, and go
back to the search. Search for filename "*.java" again, with contents
matching the string you paste in. Get zero hits. Lame!
Google Desktop search does the trick for me, however. Try that instead.
