This is the first time I've seen someone actually mention the core of the problem. Searching in URL, TITLE and TITLE headers are just plain stupid. I could live with it, if it was possibly to turn it off! Now the only option, mentioned below in this thread, is to disable it all together. :(

If someone could just tell it to stop searching in TTILE and I would be satisfied!

The main reason why Mono is a bad idea is summarized by "Don't imitate, innovate!".

The reason Mono is a bad idea is that it takes a technology designed as propriety and designed by people who have a terrible record of performance and security, and then making that platform stronger.

It's a bad idea for it basically gives Microsoft a wider platform to leverage their business praxis. It's a bad idea for it is a "me too" technology.

Then it's *also* known to be a bad idea to enter the lion's den.
