If this is the case I think that osisplain has bugs in it.

The following are replaced by osisplain with \n:
<milestone type="line"/>

Note, that some of these allow for attributes.

Of the element of OSIS that naturally produce line breaks, these are  
the only that are handled.

I also find the following in osisplain
The text of notes are rendered between (). My guess is that notes may  
be turned off during searching.
The attributes of a <w> element are rendered between <>. Again, I  
presume strongs may be filtered out before searching.

I did not find any stripping of punctuation in osisplain.

It looks like phrase searching in swmodule.cpp at line 649 (that you  
pointed out) does an exact match of the user's input within the verse  
after both have been filtered by the same set of filters. I tried to  
find where punctuation was stripped out, which must be done because  
phrase searching works and verses may have punctuation, but I didn't  
find it, having gotten lost at the list of applied filters. I am  
wondering whether that filter replaces \n with ' '.
