The only problem I know of is leading wildcards in search terms. These
prevent the index on the word column from being used, hence a full table
scan is done. This problem has gotten worse since the "try leading
wildcards automatically if nothing was found" patch.
I have some architectural changes for search.module in my head which
might help with this (though the main point is to introduce phrase
searching), but I won't have time for this until my exams end.
