Some additional data points and a hypothesis.

I would have added this to a comment on:
had the facility to do so been provided...

Reproduce code:
--------------- -> sizeof -> search page

Presumably a phonetic lookup is involved on us4, then.

Tried it with sysov and got the same thing.

Expected result:
What I WANTED was to end up searching for that SYS V Shared Memory stuff.

I'm thinking the phonetic thing is maybe a bit "too much" especially as I have to go to the search popup and change to "whole site" to get to what I want, which might not be obvious to a frustrated user who keeps putting in "sysv" and keeps ending up on the "sizeof" page...

Either way, us2 and us4 should be "the same", no?

The "Add Comment" tab is missing from:

I got there from being about to submit a bug report, then you guys show me the other report, so I go check it out in a new window, and, sure enough, it's the same bug, but then I can't add a comment to help you out, so I submit a NEW bug report (sorry) and then find out there *IS* an "Add Comment" tab, only sometimes. :-)

The mirrors using phonetic search are utilizing the sqlite lookup database, which is faster to work with then the file based lookups (which are used by mirrors without this phonetic search feature). Now if we would disable the mirrors using the file based lookups, we would end up with really few mirrors. This will only get more consistent over time.

I am suggesting that the "phonetic search" is a Bad Feature when it doesn't give one the option to turn the silly thing OFF...
