Note that the above Patch only contains a bug fix. The version of
stemmer.c I use has other "adjustments."
For example, I don't stem any words that stem to one or less characters.
I also call Stem() in a loop until a word no longer stems.
If this isn't done then, for example,
"playing" stems to "play"
"play" stems to "plai"
So searching for "playing" fails to find "play" (and "plays", "played").
I guess it's debatable if that's a bug or not.
