[sword-devel] Strong's search does not return result if Strong's number in text points to different parts of a verse

Hi all,
The Strong's search does not return results if the Strong's numbers in the text point to a part of a verse.
Example: G5179
This should actually yield 15 results (according to Blue Letter Bible).
One example result is John 20:25. The source text in NASB contains this:
<w class="strong:G5179b">the imprint</w>

Another example is Acts 7:44. The source text in NASB contains this:
<w class="strong:G5179b">to the pattern</w>

In both examples the Strong's id contains a character (b) at the end and that's what the search is not able to handle.

This is how I’m setting up the search flags in this case:

// from swmodule.h api docs:
// for use with entryAttrib search type to match whole entry to value
searchTerm = "Word//Lemma./" + searchTerm;

Is this a bug?

Best regards,
