Work Item query of Description field returns no result

SfTS v3

I am not sure that this is necessarily related to the Scrum template but considering that I am using that template and that there are customized fields I am asking this here.

I am trying to find Work Items containing specific text in the Description field. The query specifies the "Description" field, operation "Contains", argument "Text".

When I run the query it returns no results even though if I change the field to "Title" and search there I find a Work Item and then look in the Description field I also find the text.

Is the "Description" field not used in SfTfs layout?

If not, then what field name is used? 

I have tried searching PBI and SBT Work Items and both behave the same way.

I take it that no-one else has this problem.  That, in itself, is worthwhile information.
