Comment (by joyously):

 > Searching random words and being surprised that results show up isn't a
 good way to test search.
 > Searching for junk is going to give weird results, almost as weird as
 the input you give it, but it'll do it's best to find something that you
 actually meant (which It assumes wasn't the junk it got).

 Really, it's a ''good'' way to test what the search is matching. I think
 the correct result is what the old search gave (no results), not the junk
 that the new search assumes matches due to stemming and whatever else it's
 doing. A valid result is zero matches, so why didn't the new search show
 me that?  I think there is too much weighting going on in the new search.
