(using 3.1.5)

1. i have a website with the tipitaka (in the pali language) and would
like to be able to search for word endings, but the wildcard * only seems
to work at the end of a word or partial word and not at the beginning. i
want to search for "*buddhassa" and get matches for "sammaasambudhassa."

2. when i search for words with an 8-bit character, i never get any
matches. do i need to change something in the configuration?

3. i never get any matches on 2-letter words. can this be fixed?


from the dhammapada:
  The perfume of tagara and sandalwood is of little enough power, while
  the supreme fragrance, that of the virtuous, reaches even up to the
  devas. 56
