KinoSearch tries to split the single words from composed things. Thus it reads "something-combined-together" as three words: "something combined together". The same is true for combinations with underscore. Thus "something_with_underscore" will be treated as "something with underscore". This feature is extremely usefull, as you can search for the single words and need not know the complete word (Note: KinoSearch has no possibility to search with wildcards!). But of course you need to know about it (Perhaps I will add some words in the documentation). If you want so search for "something-combined-together", you need to search for "something combined together". If you add also the " to the search string, you are sure, that the three words are in that order one after the other.

Maybe, we can enhance the add-on, so that it changes queries with "-" or "_" to queries with spaces, but I am not so deep in the KinoSearch details. Perhaps there are more things to be considered.

Re-naming the plugin, and needs to check if this still applies.
