A question regarding count of matching documents returned by
When I use OR to create a query of a term and some of its
related synonyms, it appears to me xapian double-counts some docs.
The extreme example is the count of query ‘term1’ versus ‘term1
OR term1’. I assumed the two queries should return the same counts, but the
second query returns twice.
Have I missed anything?
