Post a follow up: 

 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    node.module
 Category:     bug reports
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  Morbus Iff

 Updated by:   Bèr Kessels
 Status:       patch

Just a thought: node_view can be extremely dynamic. so the search index
might get overrun with odd or even non-existing entries. 

Also: potentially, a node_view can return entries based on the
role/permission. parts of a body can be hidden away for certain users.
This patch will break that behaviour too.

I beleive that the search system needs some renewed thought, to
overcome such issues.

During search indexing, the node.module invokes node_view and node view
api before indexing it for content (see node_update_index). This,
however, doesn't happen on node_search, which assumes that the body
exists to get a snippet from. This causes an empty snippet on flexinode
nodes, or anything else that requires a node view api. This patch simply
adds the same block from node_update_index to node_search.
