I'm trying to search for certain posts, but when I enter single user then the forum apparently only searches for single. Apparently, because when browsing the results, only the word single gets highlighted, as can also be seen in the URL:
Code:
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-13811-highlight-single.html

One other search which doesn't seem to work is lib size. Many of the results of this search don't contain the word lib despite having selected "Search for all terms".
On the other hand, if I search for format string the URL for one of the results reads as follows:
Code:
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-300341-highlight-format+string.html
which leads me to believe that the search was performed with both words.

Could it be that there is some bug in the handling of the variables and the phpBB interprets user as a command?
Or am I doing something wrong?

Moved from Gentoo Forums Feedback to Duplicate Threads, certain common words are stripped from the search. See this topic for more details.
