Hi Christian,

In the end whether propagate stems or not in these queries is not important to
convey their meaning. The queries and the expected results are the same. Q1 is
true because the word of is a stop word. Q3 fails because no stop words are
used and the word of is treated as a word.

But I take your point and have added propagate propagating propagation to the
stemming file. If a stemming operator is in the query, it is nice to have one
of the words in the query in stemming dictionary.

Please realize though that the stemming dictonary is meant to be brief and
practical. It does not attempt to enable stemming on every stemmable word in
the source documents.

If this result is acceptable to you, please close this bug.

Pat Case
