Working on a site running civicrm 4.4.11

Using Find Contacts to find contacts of type "organisation"

Returns 1206 contacts paged over 25 pages.

We can use forward and back to navigate between results pages, but when using the option go to page x/25. Sometimes the search results disappear and it returns to the find contacts page with the error message

No matches found for: Contact Type - 'Organization'


check your spelling try a different spelling or use fewer letters if you are searching within a Group or for Tagged contacts, try 'any >group' or 'any tag' add a New Individual, Organisation or Household make sure you have enough privileges in the access control system

I've tried flushing the drupal and civicrm caches, and still get the error.

Anyone got any suggestions?

As Jon said it's a known issue in 4.4, fixed in 4.6. You can backport the fix to a previous version by applying the following patch:
