This appears to be the case for all languages too, the stemming will skew 
similarity and result in unrelated documents scoring higher than they need 

Some people seem to be working around this by having two fields where one is 
stemmed and the other isn't.  You could then use the stemmed field when doing 
queries but use the non-stemmed field for MoreLikeThis.
