A few quick printf() statements lead me to:
#define IGNORE_STOPWORDS_IN_QUERY 0
BTW -- I think there's a bug when that's set to 1. On my Win32 version
Swish crashes when it's set to one, and I search for a common word and
another word. For example, if 'stop' is a stop word and I search for 'stop
I'm not clear why that IGNORE_STOPWORDS_IN_QUERY was added.
