Is This Strange Google Site Command Behavior?

I don't think this is exactly related to Google mixing up titles and URLs from yesterday (if you have examples, please comment, so Matt can address them at Google). But over at Search Engine Roundtable Forums, PPCBlogger showed us an example of something I found to be a bit out of the norm for Google.

A search in Google for www.quiltersguild.org.uk/index.php?page=56 returns no results:

Google Strangeness

But when you search for that URL in this syntax, site:www.quiltersguild.org.uk/ 56, it shows the result:

Google Strangeness

Now, typically, if the page is indexed, it should come up for a search on the URL alone. For example, a search on http://forums.seroundtable.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2 returns a result.

Just seems a bit strange to me.
