[Xapian-discuss] Stemming behavior

I use python xapian bindings to stem strings and get this behavior:

Python 2.4.6 (#1, Jul 24 2009, 19:28:46)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5367)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import xapian
>>> xapian.version_string()
>>> s = xapian.Stem('en')
>>> s('editing')
>>> s('Editing')

Is it a bug or a feature, that for the word 'Editing' different result
is returned than for edit?

Thanks a lot,
