You could well be right, the stopwords patch


probably needs a line

  delete analyzer;

added to the group of deletes, after the existing line

  delete an;

Matthew: Do you agree with this proposed patch to your patch? :)

Sounds good to me.  I'm not trying to push you along, at all (though I'd
be happy to see a 1.6.1 release, especially if it has some working test
suites and ideally some utility regression tests in it!).  I'm just
trying to see if we can get some known bugs in the 1.6.0 codebase fixed
in our SWORD packages before Ubuntu Karmic goes out the door --
otherwise the fixes won't officially be in Ubuntu for yet another six
months.  Seeing xiphos segfault and die when you search for the word
"is" ... well, it just doesn't feel good :)
