Add Missing Entities not displaying correct search results for many artists

    Details

      Description

      While adding the tracklist at http://tickets.musicbrainz.org/secure/attachment/10215/tracklist.txt using fmi's instructions from separate issue MBS-2778:

      1. Use "Add various artists release"
      2. Check VA checkbox - use any title
      3. Paste track list from the attached file (as is)
      4. Click straight to Add missing entities

      Among others, it complains to me about the artists Justine, Greed, Alex Party, Winx* - ALL of which have either exact matches in the DB or easily searchable matches. The interface basically forces me to add duplicate artists; not displaying any of the trivial matches.

      Justine: http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=justine&type=artist
      Greed: http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=greed&type=artist
      Alex Party: http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=Alex+Party&type=artist
      Winx*: http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=Winx*&type=artist

      Why is AME not finding obviously matching entities? Aside from MBS-2467 and MBS-2564 that is...

      If you click through to actually enter the edit (with all the add artists) it gives you an ISE; I'm guessing this is probably because it's violating dupe artists constraints with no comment, but test is currently broken so I can't see the full error.
