searching without a bdate

Never used to be any problem to tree search a name without a bdate.
Now, searching an name where a bdate is in ther but I don't know it does not work. it just crashes into the little magnifier jiggling around for ever, never returns a result. Yet if I search a name that actually has no bdate entered, it comes up fine.

Why, and what to do about it?
