I test the statusnet on my site: lifent.net
I find that: if there is a sentence written in chinese "大家好啊，欢迎加入！"（which means "hello everyone, welcome join in us!"）
I can't got any result by searching a piece of this sentence, like "大家" or "欢迎"，I can only get right result by searching the whole sentence! even the english words as so, like the word "hello", I can find it by input whole "hello", but can't find by "hel" or "llo"!
what's the problem?
I can run a functional search with the wordpress on my site(you can try), but statusnet not support this.
