Percolator not working with exact match

Hi guys,

I was reading about the percolator feature on and I couldn't get exact matches (queries with quotes) to work.

The document {"message" : "A new bonsai tree in the office"} returns the queries "bonsai tree" and ""bonsai in the office"" as well.

See detail on gist:

Did you try Phrase Matching? I believe that one should work the way you expected the query with quotes to work.

"Phrase query" does work and I'm going to use that instead, thanks!

Should the quote issue be considered a bug?

I don't think it's a bug, quotes in match queries are analyzed like any other query string and the standard analyzer just discards them as punctuation. The expectation that this would work like a phrase match was the problem I think.
