Actually, it doesn't - it's TermIterator now I think about it.  But
I suspect that must be what you meant.

You said:

OK, my best guess is that by "get_matching_terms()" you mean
"get_matching_terms_begin() and get_matching_terms_end()" (and by
"MSetIterator" you mean "TermIterator").  The answer to that amended
question is that this reportedly works fine.

If that's not the question you were asking, what was?

I can't see an answer either way on this in the earlier mails - if you
saw it, please point it out.

The other piece of information we definitely do have is that this works:


where foo() returns the same array which the call to
get_matching_terms() is supposed to.
