Error in Nominatim search

When I try to find information about a street, using it's name, I discovered a strange thing.

If I search for the street "Strada Anton Pan" stored with ID number: 42042650 in the following way, I get an empty array: ",Satu%20Mare,Satu%20Mare,Romania ".

But if I only give one word from the streets name, like: ",Satu%20Mare,Satu%20Mare,Romania " I get the correct data. The name field of this id is as follows: "Strada Anton Pan, Satu Mare, Municipiul Satu-Mare, Satu Mare, 440182, Romania"

This thing is true to all street names, where the name contains a space in it, for example George Cosbuc, Ilarie Chendi(all of them from Satu Mare, Satu Mare, Romania). By searching for the whole name, I get an empty array, but if I search for only one word, I get the desired result.

I don't know if this is a bug, or is intended this way, but please take a look.
