Bug
'exact phrase' search not working

I put in 'arcing connector' for an 'exact phrase' search and got many results which did not have the exact phrase. I'm using the latest version of chrome on a macbook.

I did this search, and each result contained either the "arcing connector" or "arc connector" phrases ("arc" vs "arcing" is the stemming at work - it's a feature, not a bug).

There are two instances where the sentence boundary fell within the phrase ("... were signs of major arcing. Connector failure was the cause...)", but the dots and other word delimiters are ignored when indexing, so that's considered a phrase.

Mike, thanks for confirming that it works. For some reason I overlooked your good point on this...
