Setting SEARCHDEFAULTTYPE to "keyword" does not have any effect, as the search pages all defaut back to the value of type=word

I want my searches to default to partial matches within a word, however setting this variable in Main/TWikiPreferences does not affect search results (though the search help page does show the overriden value)

-- TWiki:Main/AntonPiatek - 14 Mar 2008

All occurences of "word" in data/TWiki/WebSearch.txt should be replaced with keyword The same is true for WebSearchAdvances.txt
