Reported as a followup to T58163 but I'm going to track this as a separate bug.
The problem: searching for things like <<*chokolade>> don't find <<chokolade>> or <<inchokolade>>. Note wildcards like ? and * at the start of the word are inefficient and we've turned them off in production. But they should still be turn-on-able. In this case Cirrus actually eats *s that don't come at the beginning of a word. We should just not eat those *s and continue turn it off using a query flag in production and make the query flag configurable (default to allowed?) for other users.
