           Summary: Distance constraints do not work on phrases (formerly
                    Cluster G, Issue 63)
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT

It is not possible to combine the distance operation with searching for phrases.


[. ftcontains "Redmond-based" && "company" distance at least 2]

The problem is that a phrase is internally resolved into a distance operation
itself, which can impose a contradicting requirement to the explicit distance
operation used in the query. Here it is (with some assumptions on tokenization):

[. ftcontains ("Redmond" && "-" && "based" ordered with distance 0) && "company"
distance at least 2]

The second distance constraint is then imposed to all individual tokens
(including those from the phrase) and hence cannot be satisfied. The query will
also return false.
