The index I'm testing with is German Wikipedia and I've been testing
with different (arbitrarily chosen) terms. I'm listing some results, the
first number is the number of documents matched with a BooleanQuery, the
second number is the number of documents matches with a SpanQuery:

- Knacklaut	24/19
- schönes	70/70
- zufällige	71/70
- wunderbar	24/24
- Himmel	773/753
- Sonne	1190/1152

I'm using a custom Analyzer during indexing. Regarding the analyzer
applied during search, I'm not sure: as I haven't defined any specific
one, what does Lucene choose? I wasn't thinking about that because I
assumed that this should make no difference regarding the BooleanQuery
vs. SpanQuery issue.
Thanks for the hint anyway, I'll have a closer look there.
