Lucene does not allow for leading wild cards. It should throw an error.
The other error that Lucene frequently will throw with a proper wildcard 
search is that the internal query is too big, e.g. a*.

I noticed this too. I think that the order is a ranked order. Lucene 
scores each hit and returns the hits in ranked order.
