My problem is the same as the one described here:

Unfortunately, that post does not offer a working solution.

I've noticed different behavior in the search description when searching for different terms. Sometimes the managed metadata term will show as a string, and sometimes it will show with the ID and GUID in the description, even though both searches are displaying the same document as a hit.

I've also tried mapping the managed metadata column to a crawled property, but I could not locate the crawled properties for some of my managed metadata columns.

Anyone know how to fix this??

Had the same problem. Applying SP1 did the trick

We're actually on the December 2011 CU and I still see this problem. Could you share what version your environment is on? – ATAI Aug 28 '12 at 20:20
