Mike, thank you for the clarification.  Now I understand what went wrong 
in the example I looked at.   I am querying ngram indexed  data (Chinese 
text).  A user enters two or three characters and expect them to be 
matched more or less as a substring match.  The fragment I looked at did 
contain only one of the characters (the other was cut off at the end), 
this is what made me wondering.   From what you say, even adding 
quotation marks around the query will not prevent this from happening 
(in this case, it would simply obscure the match). 

Are there any plans to improve the algorithm for fragmentation?  Or are 
there other work arounds?
All the best,
