{words=stopwords.txt, ignoreCase=true, enablePositionIncrements=true}

term position:  	1	    4 
term text: 	        Here	Dragons
term type: 	        word	word
source start,end 	0,4	    14,21

After fiddling with the position incremements stuff I upped the query 
slop to 2 which seems to now provide better results but I'm worried 
about that effecting relevancy elsewhere (which I presume is the reason 
why it's not the default value).

If that's the case - is it worth writing something for my app so that if 
it detects a phrase query with lots of stop words it ups the phrase 

Either way it seems to be working now  - thanks for all the help,
