This seems somehow a bit strange. And I cant really see if it is a bug
or a "feature" but:

I have acc listed as a boolean prefix. I use STEM_SOME since that seem
to be the most useful way of doing stuff. But it would be really nice if
we'd either stemmed all prefixes or we didn't.

I have some terms like Q1W2E3 that is listed as boolean prefixes. This is
essential ID's.. so I really dont want the stemming algorithm to
stumble over them. But then if the id happens to be start with an
upper-case letter it gets fed to the search like this:

Running query 'Xapian::Query(0 * ACC:Q1W2E3)'

As far as I can tell the query with a : will never match anything in the

Xapian 1.0.5
