Whole word search allows finding `let` only in this text

let the letters be on paper.
^^^     XXX

The first let should be found, not the XXX marked one.

Yes searching for " let " works often, but not if let starts a new line.

If you still don't know what I'm talking about try starting
acrobatreader, press ctrl-shift-f and click on "Whole words only".
Same in Opera etc.
