Shouldn't searching for "admin" result in hits on all of those other terms?

That was *my* first question, too.

A user might not know which ending to the word to search for...

Even if there's some technical reason why not, a well-crafted index would've included "admin" with a hyperlinked redirection to the other terms.

Just another example of why an index beats text searching every time.
