I used to be able to search the site for keywords in functions and have it provide a short list of possible matches.  Now, it seems to be automatically redirecting to what the search thinks I meant (which keeps guessing wrong).

A quick example, searching the function list for the phrase keys will give me the pan page for the "cos()" function, not show me a list including the function I was after which was "array_keys()".

With over 9000 bugs matching " Website problem search" in the database, I can't tell whether this has already been reported.

Expected result:
Either the ability to turn off the fuzzy searching or show a summary of possible matches (the original behavior as of a month or two ago).

It depends on the mirror you use.
Some mirrors have sqlite setup and will use metaphone() to 
determine the most likely function you meant and redirect 

So, this is "a feature, not a bug" :)
