Summary: Make prefix: operator work with multiple word titles
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Lucene Search

It seems the "prefix:" search operator doesn't deal well with spaces: it uses
the correct prefix for the search, but also searches for the words of the
prefix in the text of the pages, which yields undesired results.

I tried using underscores (prefix:the_prefix) and quotation marks (prefix:"the
prefix"), but both returned no results. Maybe the underscore trick could be
used as a workaround. That would also allow using the operator anywhere on the
search, not only on the ending. Another option could be enclosing it in parens,
i.e. "some search terms (prefix:a page name) more search terms"
