RH 11 HTML: Enable Substring Search caches & highlights previous search term

I'm using RH 11 HTML and primary layout is WebHelp.

If I have Enable Substring Search turned on, search caches the prior search term. For example, I search for: prepay. Topics containg the word prepay are listed, and when I click a topic, it jumps to the first instance of prepay in the topic text and all instances of prepay are highlighted. Great. Now I search for: unbalanced. The topic list is correct, but when I click on the topic, it jumps to the first instance of prepay (many topics contain the word prepay; only one topic contains the word unbalanced). All instances of prepay in the topic text are still highlighted, and so is the one instance of unbalanced (althought the topic did not open at that word, I have to scroll way down to see it).

When I turn Enable Substring Search off and regen, search works like it should. There is no memory or caching of prior search terms so they are not highlighted for the next search and the topic opens at the term I actually searched for.

How can I have both be functional: substring search AND correct highlighting/jump-to's?

And yes, I have already searched Peter Grainge's site (it's the first place I check for RH issues) but I didn't see this issue posted.
