Search doesn't find everything it should

Dear Jeremy,

I just found out that the search functionality is not quite perfect.

Searching the Slackware forum for information on Postfix I didn't get the Postfix HowTo. The subject of the relevant thread was postifix howto (note the superfluous i between t and f --- a typo, of course). But in some of the postings postfix is correctly spelled and I would have expected to get these back as hits from my search.

So searching for postfix I didn't get this howto, but searching for sasl, it came up.

Bug or feature --- don't know. Just something I noticed.

Not here...

What I actually was looking for was this:

But this is not included in the list of hits when you search the Slackware forum for "postfix".

Hope you can reproduce it, now.
