I wound the case when it would fail, which is when Artist contain ";;" in name. If you current manually add ";;" to Artist and then initiate either global search or advanced search (Artist -> Contains -> ;) it will be found as expected

I wonder if for 5.0.2 we can add another criteria (along "contains" and others) named "Multi Value" (or similar and only if there is no new string) as that would clearly filter only tracks that have Multi Value and possibly speed SQL execution internally?

Artist contains ";" always fails to show results (also in MM4), because single artist cannot contains semicolon as it is used as multi-value separator.

But in MM4 you could put semicolon into search bar to find tracks with fields including semicolon (be it separator or not).

This was no longer the case in MM5 and is fixed in

using ; in search finds Multi Value.
