[Mediawiki-l] searching page titles

Hi all,

Need to get this one out, the other main complaint I'm seeing is that 
searching page titles is somewhat weird.

The PHPWiki behavior allowed for partial matches.  For example, if I had 
the following page titles in the wiki:


And then I searched for "foof", I'd get title matches on all of the above. 
The list would contain all of those and I could click on whichever I was 
interested in.  We very, very regularly navigate around like this.

If I search on the same terms with the same pages available in mediawiki, 
I get no page title matches, just full-text matches.

Is this the expected behavior?

Additionally, it seems like the search is not grabbing some of the new 
pages we've added.  Have I missed a cron job or similar needed to keep the 
search index up to date?
