Public bug reported:

TL;DR - Super+F search results are frustratingly not bringing up a file
named exactly the query string (with the .xlsm extension).

I've been researching insurance brokers in a file called ib.xlsm for the
past few days, and I must've searched for that file by name via Super+F,
and clicked on it, tens of times by now. However, Super+F followed by
"ib" brings up anything BUT that file. That file is also one of the most
recently modified files in the system (minutes ago).

The Super+F results don't include the file. Instead they include, for

*, in a directory happening to contain the query string in its name
* another file from that directory that doesn't have the query string anywhere 
in its name
* /c/download/Linux/meld-3.16.2/build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.7/meld/

  File search results (Super+F) should prioritize recent files more
