Just a clarification: when you do a keyword search and then Modify it,
you're taken to the srchhelp_X.html page rather than srchmod.html. (The
srchmod.html page is for Limiting/Sorting index searches).
To add to Andrew's clarification, it looks like it's your index
searches that are not retaining the location limit; as far as I can
tell, your keyword searches are retaining the limit just fine.
I think the problem is a system bug that was discovered by Mieko
Yamaguchi a while back, and which still persists (I see it in our
R2007 Pro catalog as well). When the code for the location is less
than 5 characters, the limit is not retained. You can see it in
action by limiting to your circulating or reference collection, each
of which has a location code less than five characters, and each of
which is NOT retained when you re-limit the search. But if you limit
to the DVD collection, which has a 5-character location code, the
limit is retained.
I'm not sure if III can fix this; I don't see it as a known issue,
but I'm too lazy to spend a lot of time looking for it.
