Searching for single quotes



I opened my note book and search for the sentence:

"If you don't mind me asking" (without the quotes)

and I got from Z59, xUbuntu 12.04

Looks like you found a bug

If I search for:

"mind me asking" (without the quotes) it works. It looks like a problem with the ' 

If I search for:

"If you don\'t mind me asking" (without the quotes) same error. Can't escape the single quote. How do I search for the quotes (single and double)?
