Yes, that's a problem I ran into with Swedish as well. We have for
example har/här/hår etc. But with a good dictionary it actually works
ok, if not optimally. For these words you have to select the one you
want from the matches which is a little annoying but not a total

To fix it, either you would need different normalisation tables for
each language, or a new dictionary format. Raster said in an earlier
mail on the list that he'd fix it someday but had a lot of other stuff
to look at now. So I guess we have to be patient for now.

Best regards,
