Strange, incoherent query parsing

Hi.  It seems I found another query parsing bug.  Look at the strange,
incoherent behavior below:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ NOTMUCH_DEBUG_QUERY=y notmuch count 'subject:("Saúde" "Geap") OR subject:xplitz'
Query string is:
subject:("Saúde" "Geap") OR subject:xplitz
Exclude query is:
Query(((Kdeleted OR Kspam) OR Ktrash))
Final query is:
Query(((Tmail AND (((geap@1 OR Ggeap@1 OR Kgeap@1 OR Kgeap@1 OR Qgeap@1 OR Qgeap@1 OR Pgeap@1 OR XPROPERTYgeap@1 OR XFOLDER:geap@1 OR XFROMgeap@1 OR XTOgeap@1 OR XATTACHMENTgeap@1 OR XMIMETYPEgeap@1 OR XSUBJECTgeap@1) AND (or@2 OR Gor@2 OR Kor@2 OR Kor@2 OR Qor@2 OR Qor@2 OR Por@2 OR XPROPERTYor@2 OR XFOLDER:or@2 OR XFROMor@2 OR XTOor@2 OR XATTACHMENTor@2 OR XMIMETYPEor@2 OR XSUBJECTor@2)) FILTER (XSUBJECTsaúde@1 OR XSUBJECTxplitz@1))) AND_NOT ((Kdeleted OR Kspam) OR Ktrash)))
0
$ NOTMUCH_DEBUG_QUERY=y notmuch count '(subject:"Saúde" AND subject:"Geap") OR subject:xplitz)'
Query string is:
(subject:"Saúde" AND subject:"Geap") OR subject:xplitz)
Exclude query is:
Query(((Kdeleted OR Kspam) OR Ktrash))
Final query is:
Query(((Tmail AND (((and@1 OR Gand@1 OR Kand@1 OR Kand@1 OR Qand@1 OR Qand@1 OR Pand@1 OR XPROPERTYand@1 OR XFOLDER:and@1 OR XFROMand@1 OR XTOand@1 OR XATTACHMENTand@1 OR XMIMETYPEand@1 OR XSUBJECTand@1) AND (or@2 OR Gor@2 OR Kor@2 OR Kor@2 OR Qor@2 OR Qor@2 OR Por@2 OR XPROPERTYor@2 OR XFOLDER:or@2 OR XFROMor@2 OR XTOor@2 OR XATTACHMENTor@2 OR XMIMETYPEor@2 OR XSUBJECTor@2)) FILTER (XSUBJECTsaúde@1 OR XSUBJECTgeap@1 OR XSUBJECTxplitz@1))) AND_NOT ((Kdeleted OR Kspam) OR Ktrash)))
0
$ NOTMUCH_DEBUG_QUERY=y notmuch count 'subject:"Saúde" AND subject:"Geap"'
Query string is:
subject:"Saúde" AND subject:"Geap"
Exclude query is:
Query(((Kdeleted OR Kspam) OR Ktrash))
Final query is:
Query(((Tmail AND (0 * XSUBJECTsaúde@1 AND 0 * XSUBJECTgeap@1)) AND_NOT ((Kdeleted OR Kspam) OR Ktrash)))
3
$ NOTMUCH_DEBUG_QUERY=y notmuch count 'subject:"Saúde" subject:"Geap"'
Query string is:
subject:"Saúde" subject:"Geap"
Exclude query is:
Query(((Kdeleted OR Kspam) OR Ktrash))
Final query is:
Query(((Tmail AND 0 * (XSUBJECTsaúde@1 OR XSUBJECTgeap@1)) AND_NOT ((Kdeleted OR Kspam) OR Ktrash)))

Note: "xplitz" is not a Portuguese word and does not occur on the Notmuch
database.

This happened here at my workplace.  The notmuch config is:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
# .notmuch-config - Configuration file for the notmuch mail system
#
# For more information about notmuch, see https://notmuchmail.org

# Database configuration
#
# The only value supported here is 'path' which should be the top-level

# configured here named ".notmuch".

I don't know about the other cases but here there is an  extra closing

would be nicer, but we don't currently have that option from Xapian.

Hello,

Oops.  Sorry about that.  But still there seem to be real errors.  The
first query[1] should match messages containing both "Saúde" and "Geap"
(sans the double quotes) in the subject, but does not.

1: 'subject:("Saúde" "Geap") OR subject:xplitz'

Also note that the fourth query[2] should have AND as the implicit
boolean operator, because 'subject:' is not a boolean prefix.  You
explained in the other thread the implicit OR operator only applies for
search terms with the same /boolean/ prefix.

2: 'subject:"Saúde" subject:"Geap"'

There's two problems here. The first is because of the way regexp fields
are implimented subject: doesn't tolerate the unescaped/unquoted space.
So you'd have to write  'subject:"(Saúde Geap)"' to get anything sensible.

The other problem is that are treating the part within () as a quoted
phrase, which is not correct.

If you can build from source try the patch below [1]. With it, I think

   notmuch count 'subject:"(Saúde Geap)" OR subject:xplitz'

should behave more like what you want. Notice my use of quotes is bit
different that your original query.

Yes, this is the same problem as in your other report. I posted some
patches that should fix it, but they need more testing.
