Can't seem to do an AND search with the vB search engine?

When I type two words into the vB search box (not the google one), either the simple drop down box one or the advanced page, it seems to default to, an OR search, where as on most forums it's an AND search. Even if I put the boolean modifier of AND between the terms, it still does an OR search. This results in a TON more results then you want. For instance, I'm trying to search for:
Castle Jacket
And it gives me all results that match Castle OR Jacket. Which is a huge list. Happens in thread titles or posts. I think it's either an errant setting in vB, a database issue, or a bug in the build ya'll are running. I admin a few vB forums and I've never seen this behavior that I recall.

If ya'll could fix this, it would be great, or let me know if there is an option to change it I haven't' seen, thanks!
