I have some questions concerning the search function in org-mode:

(1) I have several files in listed in the variable 
/org-agenda-text-search-extra-files/. At lease one file is definitely 
not searched using /org-agenda-search-view/. It is an ordinary org file:

#+DATE: [2013-07-05 Di 09:10]
#+TITLE: Man kann nicht nicht zitieren - Ein Sammelsurium

Some Text here. Some more Text here...
I have now idea why the search function skips that file. Can anyone give 
a hint?

Using /org-occur/ the file will be searched like any other listed in 

(2) I also tried to set up the org-agenda-text-search-extra-files using 
an expression I found on the mailing list [1]; it would be easier if I 
had not to manually extend the variable any time a new file is added.

(directory-files "~/<directory>" t "^[^.#].*\\.\\(org$\\|org_archive$\\)")

I tried different versions because I was not sure how to interpret the 
example, e.g.:
  '(org-agenda-text-search-extra-files (quote (
(directory-files "~/org" t "^[^.#].*\\.\\(org$\\|org_archive$\\)")


'(org-agenda-text-search-extra-files (quote (
   ("~/org" t "^[^.#].*\\.\\(org$\\|org_archive$\\)")


'(org-agenda-text-search-extra-files (quote (
("~/org/" t "^[^.#].*\\.\\(org$\\|org_archive$\\)")

but after committing a search org-mode tells me that "/org" or "/org/" 
ist not an org-file (which is obviously true and tells me that the 
directory and the regex is not concatenated, but how should it look?)

Many thanks for pointers to the right direction!
