Search box error

One of those things. I am showing off the marvel that is a dynamic website and am confronted with a search box problem. Multiple renditions of the same post are being returned with some search queries. I have done a little testing and it seems to happen when there are more than twenty or so instances of a particular search item. As usual I wonder if it is something I have overlooked. In my defence I had not noticed it before installing WP2.6 but then again I use the search function infrequently.

I am not receiving any error messages database or otherwise – so it remains one of those little WordPress mysteries for the time being.

My pc or university pronunciation, of te reo, is remarkably different from the Anglicised versions with which I grew up and painfully different still, at times, from the joyful music of ‘native tongue’ speaking friends (who I must add speak perfect New Zealand English).
