Can you explain?  At indexing time words longer than MAXWORDLIMIT are 
not indexed.  On searching if you try to search for a word MAXWORDLIMIT 
you get:

  err: Search word exceeded maxwordlimit setting

Truncating wouldn't work as that would change the word (a poor-man's 
stemmer).  You can't just exclude the word from the search because that 
changes the search.
