It seems this is a new treatment - it was just covered today on one of the blogs that covers Google Search.
I can see how this might be useful, but there should be a very hard to miss message that your exact search was changed. Call me a grumpy old cycnic, too.
By the way, now that this thread is indexed, your pharse match search does have a result ;)

There is a pretty hard to miss message that says:

Results for [query] (without quotes):

Personally, I understand the approach, but I don't support it. I think it encourages people not to bother to learn better searching habits, which in the long term is worse for everyone.

Bah. Back to the drawing board ;)
Now to think of what words to include in this thread to get it dropped out of Google. Actually, better not....;)

Now since it has a result (this page) I see:
See results for: "search term without quotes" right below.
I also shortened what was in the quotes and it gave me 3 exact the the "See results for:" right below.
