That is not what I am seeing from my testing:

a.b.c.d.e.f.g.h is not broken apart like how the snowball demo  
indicates it should do.


"a.b.c.d.e.f.g.h" shows:

a -> a
b -> b
c -> c
d -> d
e -> e
f -> f
g -> g
h -> h

For my lucene testing, I indexed one text file with one   
"a.b.c.d.e.f.g.h" string in it and opened the index up using Luke.   
It only indexed the string a.b.c.d.e.f.g.h (and didn't parse the  
string based on the periods).

As a real world example, Logon.dll is being converted to "Logon.dl"  
rather than "Logon" and "dll" as indicated by the snowball demo.



somemsp -> somemsp
