Comma in boolean mode problem

I have a small cg blog and am currently migrating from 4.1 so I hope this is in the right area. I'm trying to do a boolean search on mysql 5.0.51a-3 on ubuntu which previously worked in 4.1 but now seems to be getting hung up on the comma.

Some reading has shown that the comma is one of the "stop chars" that delimits words, but in this case, it's wanted as part of the phrase, while maintaining it's function as a stop char for most of the rest of the index. How/Is this possible?

Here are two examples, the first searching without double quotes, the second with double quotes, both return empty result sets:

SELECT distinct title.upc, title.name
FROM titles as title
WHERE MATCH (title.name)
AGAINST ('10,000 BC' IN BOOLEAN MODE)

SELECT distinct title.upc, title.name
FROM titles as title
WHERE MATCH (title.name)
AGAINST ('"10,000 BC"' IN BOOLEAN MODE)


Thanks in advance :).
