SDL Edit + Multiterm bug? Segment with ^t doesn't recognize term

I'm getting a really strange bug in SDL Edit. I added the term 'domestic partner' to my Multiterm glossary. I did it directly from SDL Edit (Ctrl+Shift+F11), so I know I'm using the correct languages. I enabled the Lookup and Fuzzy features in the Multiterm options, so every time I come across that term, it shows up on the Multiterm window.

But for some reason I don't understand, the term doesn't generate any matches in one particular segment (123). Even though the next two segments (and others throughout the document) include the same term, and the results are displayed normally-- the third segment (125) is a fuzzy match and it's still shown on the Multiterm window.

The only difference I noticed is that, the segment that's not generating the Multiterm results (123), include a ^t. But other segments with the tab mark don't have this same problem.

I've uploaded a screenshot where the problem is displayed. I blurred everything but the terms; on that screenshot, the cursor is placed on segment 125, and the Multiterm results show a fuzzy match.

Is this a known bug? Am I overlooking something?



Edit: I have SDL 2007 SP2 build 7035
