Searchable Tags and "Long Description" with Elgg 1.7.4

Using the elgg_caldendar mod with elgg 1.7.4, I am having trouble getting the events to be fully searchable.  

I've added "register_entity_type('object','event_calendar');" to the end of event_calendar_init(), but the search feature still does not look through tags or the "long description" of the event.  Further, when I click on a tag within a created event, it brings me to the search page with "no results" and shows the error message "event_calendar:error_nosuchevent".

Any ideas?
